This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Basilica de Nossa Senhora do Rosario de Fatima, Rua de Rainha Santa Isabel 26, Fatima 2495-424 Portugal

We will stop and explore the Sanctuary of Fatima for 1 hour. Fatima is today one of Catholicism’s major shrines and is visited by 6 million people every year. It is said that the Virgin Mary appeared to three children – Lucia, Francisco and Jacinta – every single month from May 13th, 1917 until October 13th, 1917.

Stop At: Batalha Monastery, Largo Infante Dom Henrique 2440, Batalha 2440-484 Portugal

We’ll explore the Batalha Monastery (we’ll only visit the church), that was built by King João I to thank the Virgin Mary for the Portuguese victory over the Spanish during the Battle of Aljubarrota in 1385. This UNESCO monument in mainly Gothic, however, there were many additions made in the 15th and 16th centuries that are Manueline. This is also the first pantheon to be built in Portugal of João I and his English wife, Philippa of Lancaster.

Duration: 30 minutes

Stop At: Nazaret, Praca Manuel Arriaga 20, Nazare 2450-160 Portugal

Nazare is a fishing town full of nice places to stop and enjoy the ocean view (the town center is full of sea-food restaurants and bars). Nazare is also one of the most picturesque coastal cities, nearly a cliff-backed beach, and is now one of the most popular places to surf in Portugal. In 2011, the biggest wave in the world (nearly 24 meters; 79 feet) was surfed here by Garrett McNamara, a professional American big wave surfer. You should relax here for a while and try a typical local restaurant for lunch.

Duration: 1 hour 30 minutes

Stop At: O Sitio, Top of the Cliff, Nazare 2450-076 Portugal

Nazaré was first founded here. This is a cliff-top area 110 meters (360 feet) above the ocean, popular for its amazing views. There is a small chapel here that was built after 1182 by a local nobleman Dom Fuas Roupinho, to thanks, Virgine Mary for saving his life here. Nor far away from here there is a baroque church built in the 17th-century (Igreja de Nossa Senhora da Nazaré)

Duration: 30 minutes

Stop At: Obidos Village, Obidos Portugal

Óbidos is a medieval town that was taken from the Muslims in 1148. Is since that time a walled city, with cobblestone streets and flower-bedecked, whitewashed houses. It was founded at the top of a hill where was possible to overlook the ocean, but the bay gradually silted up. Is since the 15th century a landlocked town. But Obidos it’s not only about medieval architecture, but it’s also about animated festivals, bookstores, small museums, chocolate and ginjinha (cherry-liqueur; 1 per person is included in the price). In recent years Óbidos has been reinventing itself as a literary center.
