You shouldn’t misse the giant religious third in Fatima, made by the Portuguese artist Joana Vasconcelos, inaugurated on May 12, 2017, precisely to symbolize the centenary of the apparitions, the piece called “Suspensão”, made of white beads, with 26 meters Illuminated for the first time on the night of May 12, when Pope Francis entered into the sanctuary, with the thousands of pilgrims present, to pray the rosary.

In the 19th century Sintra became the first centre of European Romantic architecture when the Portuguese king Ferdinand II turned a ruined monastery into a Palace ( Pena Palace ) where this new sensitivity was displayed in the use of diferente architectural styles; Gothic, Egyptian, Moorish and Renaissance elements and in the creation of a park blending local and exotic species of trees creating a unique combination of parks and gardens which influenced the development of landscape architecture throughout Europe.

Fatima - The Apparitions

May 13th of 1917, three children, Jacinta Marto, Francisco Marto and Lucia de Jesus (known as the three shepherds) had witnessed the appearances of Lady Mary that had told them to built a chapel there to honor our Lady of the White Rosary ( this is the “real” name of this shrine ) She also told them that She would return there six more times at the same day ( the 13th) at the same hour in the next six months from 13 of May to the 13th of October.

Fatima - Shrine

Fatima, considered by many one of the most important Marian Shrines in the world, where we will pay homage to Lady Mary, in the Cova da Iria through the visit to the two Basilicas there; Our Lady of the White Rosary, Holy Trinity and the Chapel of the Apparitions.

The Chapel of the Apparitions as the first Chapel to be built shortly after the apparitions, located in the center of the Sanctuary is a place not to be missed, not for grandeur, but for the meaning, it is mandatory to visit it on our Fatima and Sintra Tour.

At one end the Basilica of Our Lady of the White Rosary, built in 1928 with a neo-baroque architecture, here you will find the tombs of the three little shepherd children (Francis and Jacinta), and now also the tomb of Sister Lucia, in the other end the imposing Basilica of the Holy Trinity, built in 2007 with more than 8,000 seats and 40,000 m² of area designed by the Greek architect Alexandros Tombazis.

“Great service”

We hired Walkborder Tour to pick us up from the Lisbon airport to Fatima and back. Although it was a short trip, our driver Hugo was very pleasant and helpful to accommodate all of our requests. The car was nice, clean and comfortable with captain chairs for all 8 of us. They provided a carseat for my 3 1/2 years old free of charge. They also accommodated the time changed for our pickup due to Air France messed up our connection in Paris. We definitely will use Walkborder again if we return to Portugal in the future. Thank you for making our first visit safe and comfortable.

There tours were wonderful. There were private tours and I was able to dictate how much time wat spent at each site. Joao is a fabulous driver/guide.

2 October, 2018

WE spent the best 6 days with Walkborder touring Portugal in a comfortable Mercedes van. It would be worth coming to Portugal just to spend time with this amazing man. After a day he had assessed our interests and weaknesses( unable to go “up”) and tailored the trip to suite. He drove carefully and well. He was intelligent educated and knowledgeable. In all the perfect tour guide. We have had personal guides in many countries but he has been by far the best.
