Departure: 09h00 a.m. On the first day of our Tour, we will cross a landscape full of windmills and fruit trees through the west coast and we will arrive in Obidos. This pretty town, freezing its appearance somewhere in the middle ages, is a national monument and has been carefully preserved. It’s a vibrant tourist destination, with many festivals and events that attract people from all over the world. Its castle stands out and its medieval streets invites a visit. After Obidos, we will visit Alcobaça, which is the home of the first and largest gothic church in Portugal.
Then, we will proceed to the traditional town of Nazaré. This fishing village is more than just a place to catch record-breaking waves: it’s a great destination for food, views, relaxation and to feel the true Tradition of Portugal. We will admire its impressive beach, the fishermen and their wives working with the fresh fish, its old streets and the famous “Sítio”, with breathtaking views. We will continue to Batalha, where we will visit the Monastery of Santa Maria de Victoria, a masterpiece of the gothic architecture.
And our day will end in Fátima, one of the most popular Catholic pilgrimage sites in the world.

We will get in touch with its spirituality and will discover the holiness of the place. Accommodation in Fatima.
