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.

Aljustrel. Valinhos 


We invite you to visit Jacinta, Francisco and Lucia’s houses in Aljustrel. Here you can imagine how their daily lives were like and the early 20th century in our country.  


We’re also going to visit the Well of Arneiro, on the backyard of Lucia's house – the place of the second apparition of the Angel. 


In Valinhos we will visit Loca do Anjo - where, the first and the third apparition of the Angel, took place – and the place where the fourth apparition of Our Lady, occurred.


Here, you will be able to enjoy, not only a magnificent landscape of the whole scenery surrounding the "Miracle of Fátima": Aljustrel, Valinhos, Parish Church of Fátima and Fátima Sanctuary but mainly the silence and peace of the Path of the Three Shepherds.


Castle of Ourém


Let's visit the Castle of Ourém


From a military architectural structure to a Palatial House. Always associated to the story of the name Fátima which accommodates the Marian Shrine of Fátima.  


The Castle Church where we can find the statue of the medieval famous Knight Nuno Alvares Pereira. First he was a brave Knight and there is so much to tell you about it... after a long military life he became a Friar and today is known to the world as Saint Nuno of Saint Mary


Dazzling views from the castle. 

Get inspired. Appreciate the beautiful landscape around and why not having the traditional and famous cherry based liquor - Ginjinha?
