Multi-city private tour to Óbidos, Batalha, Nazaré & Fátima
This full-day multi-city tour takes you to some of Portugal's most popular medieval and 20th-century architectural and religious marvels, beginning in Lisbon and ending in Fátima.
At 8.00 am your car departs from Lisbon and head to Óbidos, the 'wedding present town'. This is the town that King Dinis gave to his bride, Queen Isabel, on their wedding day in 1282. This romantic village is surrounded by the 45-foot-high walls of a medieval Moorish castle, the famous Pousada do Castelo.
At Nazaré, a traditional Portuguese fishing village, you will make a stop for lunch and, if time permits, you will head to Sítio to enjoy a beautiful view of the beach and the ocean. Then, kick off the afternoon with a trip to Batalha Monastery, another UNESCO World Heritage Site, with beautiful stained-glass windows and the Manueline-style Royal Cloister.
After the visit to the monastery, you will travel to the Sanctuary of Our Lady of Fátima, a center of Catholic faith and globally recognized pilgrimage destination. In the Basilica there are housed the tombs of Lúcia, Francisco, and Jacinta, peasant children who, despite threats, never denied witnessing the apparition of Mary. The heart of the shrine is in the Chapel of Apparitions and, if the schedule allows it, you can attend mass there.
Afterward, you can relax in your car at the return to Lisbon on a route that takes you through a rich agricultural region.
