Explore the Portuguese capital and its highlights on a morning tour of Lisbon, before driving to the pilgrim site of Fátima.
Drive down Liberty Avenue, arriving at the Rossio in the heart of the city. We’ll take a short walk in Alfama, the oldest and most picturesque quarter of this romantic city. Then don't miss your appointment for a special wine tasting at a local handicraft store. Our drive continues leisurely along the riverside as we admire the Praça do Comércio and the Tagus Bridge that we will cross if it is possible.
Arriving in the Discoveries Quarter, you will stop at the Torre de Belém and the Discoveries Monument, built in commemoration of D. Henrique o Navegante. You'll visit the church at the Mosteiro dos Jerónimos, a masterpiece of Manueline Style and the Coach Museum, housing the world's largest collection (On Mondays both are sites are closed, replaced by a visit to The Ajuda Palace). Then break for lunch on your own.
Leaving Lisbon, head north to the city of Fátima. Discover Fátima Sanctuary. A cornerstone of the Catholic faith and destination for pilgrims arriving from all around the world, the Sanctuary of Fátima is visited by hundreds of thousands every year. Here, you may visit the Basilica housing the tombs of Jacinta, Lúcia and Francisco, as well as the Chapel of apparitions. Time is also provided for attending mass or touring the sanctuary's grounds.
