From there, you'll commence your Tour with an air-conditioned minivan ride to the center of Portugal, 150 kilometers (90 miles) north of Lisbon arriving at the region of Fátima.
In 1917 a religious event changed the history of this location for ever, when three little shepherds witnessed successive apparitions of Our Lady of Fatima (another name for the Virgin Mary) turning Fátima, into the religious capital of Portugal and one of the most important landmarks in the Marian worship, drawing pilgrims from all over the world.
In Fátima, you’ll spend time exploring the religious site, visiting the Chapel of Apparitions to see the stone pillar that marks the spot where Virgin Mary appeared, the Shrine that is twice the size of St Peter's Square in the Vatican, the Basilica of Our Lady of the Rosary of Fátima and absolving all the religious atmosphere and serenity that this whole location offers!
At the other end of Fatima’s Shire the Most Holy Trinity Church – Lesser Basilica, from 2007 is an amazing modern piece of architecture, without intermediate supports and with a total capacity of about 8,700 people.
We leave Fátima Shire but our Tour has not came to an end! We take you to a small local village, just 2km away called Aljustrel place where the three cousin shepherds came from, for you to see the houses these children lived in (as well as a "house-museum" for you to visit) and get the real inside of their life and costumes and get a real context of this location! From there we walk to Valinhos a close by village, another place marked by Our Ladies apparitions to the three cousins as well us apparitions of the Peace Angel (or Angel of Portugal) back in the 1916.
As the tour ends, get back in your vehicle, relax and enjoy the beautiful rural views until your tour ends at the departure point.
