Sanctuary of Fatima & Aljustrel Tour Itinerary
Having been picked up from your hotel in Coimbra, you'll set off on your tour of rural Portugal, heading in the direction of the village of Fatima. The first stop on your tour will be in the historic village of Aljustrel, where, according to Catholic tradition, three young shepherds witnessed apparitions of the Virgin Mary in 1917.
Strolling through the streets of the tiny town, you'll visit the houses of Lucía, Francisco and Jacinta, the three shepherd children. Having absorbed the mythical atmosphere of Aljustrel, you'll head back on the road to your next stop, the Sanctuary of Our Lady of Fatima. With more than six million visitors each year, this pilgrimage centre is an unmissable visit for those interested in Catholicism in Portugal.
Visit the Basilica of Our Lady of the Rosary, a magnificent white stone building whose 65 metre tall (213 foot) tower stands out elegantly in the complex, the enormous modern Basilica of the Holy Trinity, and the Chapel of the Apparitions, where the three children are said to have been first visited by the Virgin Mary. If you're lucky, you may even be able to attend mass here!
After visiting the most important monuments and religious sites at the Sanctuary of Fatima, you'll make the return journey to Coimbra where you'll be dropped off at your hotel.
