PLACES TO VISIT

Fátima

 


The Sanctuary of Fátima is one of the most cherished Marian Shrines in the world. 

At the Sanctuary we’ll visit the 
Chapel of the Apparitions – where our Lady appeared for five times and talked to the little shepherds. 

Also the large holm-oak where they used to pray the Rosary; the Colonnade with its 200 columns and religious statues and the the Basilica of Our Lady of the Rosary of Fatima – where we have the remains of Blessed Jacinta and Francisco and also Lúcia.

Crossing the shrine you can stop next to the statue of Sacred Heart of Jesus and the 
Nativity  Scene.


The visit will end with a place of historic memory: the Monument of the Berlin Wall. This place reminds us of the importance of John Paul II in bringing the eastern and western parts of Europe closer together and the message of Fatima.
 

Our next visit is the Basilica of the Most Holy Trinity with its high bronze doors, dedicated to the Twelve Apostles and the main portico alluding to the apparitions of the Angel.


Batalha


In the village of Batalha you will find one of the most beautiful Portuguese monuments - the Monastery of Santa Maria da Vitória.


This Monastery is also popularly known as Monastery of Batalha, alluding to the decisive Battle of Aljubarrota, between the Kingdom of Portugal and Castile - 1385 - from which Portugal emerged victorious and with a consolidated independence from Spain of nowadays. 


This magnificent building presents itself as an authentic passport for time travel: from the Middle Ages to the Age of Discoveries. Rest assured that this masterpiece of Gothic and stone lacy, Manueline - rehearsed in this place, for the first time, in Portugal will surprise you, for sure. 


Classified by UNESCO as World Heritage in 1983.


Alcobaça


A small and friendly town, in which the usual Portuguese convent pastries are not lacking, in all small cafes and terraces overlooking the Monastery of Alcobaça.


No less appealing in this city is the theme of the love experienced between King Dom Pedro and Inês de Castro. The Alcobaça Monastery is one of the most well-known European Cistercian abbeys. 


It was classified by UNESCO in 1989.


From the 12th century, and closely linked to the foundation and expansion of Portugal and its territory, it impresses visitors for its simplicity and light, but also for its greatness; the austerity of architectural features and the breathtaking details carved on  stone of the tombs of Pedro and Inês de Castro - two magnificent tombs built  to immortalized this tragic love



Nazaré


What can we say about this fishermen village?


Nazaré. Legends and pilgrimages since Middle Ages; adventure with big waves and world surf records; a dazzling view over the blue sea


The view from the top of the cliff "Sítio da Nazaré" over the Atlantic Ocean is breathtaking. But it's also in this hilltop that we'll find the Sanctuary of Our Lady of Nazaré - from 17th century - where we have a painted wooden black Virgin statue - and the Ermida da Memória [a Memorial Chapel] built in 14th century where - according to a local legend this statue was found underneath and venerated by pilgrims, since then, through times. 


It's it believed that this statue was brought here from Mérida, in Spain, in 8th century.
