Fátima and Batalha or Alcobaça – Full Day 9 hours

This West Region tour allows you to know the patrimonial “masterpieces” of Portugal. You have
as an option to visit Alcobaça or Batalha. We've decided to include in this tour a visit to Fátima,
the religious capital of Portugal, and an essential place of visit for many people.

Meeting with your private guide at the hotel lobby. We will start the day with a visit to Fátima and its Sanctuary (one hour from Lisbon), the site where Our Lady of Fátima appeared in 1917. Since then millions of pilgrims go there to pay their promises, to pray or just to feel its mystical strength! The Sanctuary Square is so big that it can only be described by numbers: it can receive simultaneously 300.000 visitors and it's twice the size of St. Peter’s Square in the Vatican.

From Fátima we will continue to the Monastery of Batalha, (or Alcobaça as an option) the biggest example in Portugal of the late Gothic Portuguese style, where we can find a mix of the Gothic style with the Manuelino Art – symbol of the Portuguese maritime expansion. If you choose to go to Alcobaça instead then you will visit the famous 12th century monastery. This monastery is not only a beautiful architectural example, but it has also the monuments in memory of King D. Pedro I and D. Inês de Castro (characters of a true romantic Portuguese story from the 14th century, very similar to “Romeu and Juliet”) of magnificent stone handwork. After the visits return to the hotel.

Entrance Fees included: Monastery of Batalha or Alcobaça
