Fatima without a doubt one of the most sought for religious centers in the world, where three children (shepherds) witnessed the apparition of the Virgin Mary on May 13, 1917. “… a lady more brilliant than the sun… “appeared to the three children, calling them to the need of praying. The Madonna told them that she would again appear  on that same date and time for five consecutive months. At the last apparition on October 13, about 70,000 people gathered to witniss the Virgin Mary perform what became known as “Miracle of the Sun” (“… the sun began to spin swiftly like a ball of fire and the clothes of people who were completely wet from the rain that day, suddenly were completely dried up…”)

Obidos an open museum where medieval times are felt in this picturesque environment, so well preserved over the centuries. Being used countless times as a “wedding gift” from Kings to their future Queens, with its narrow streets, cobbled streets, white houses with flowers on the window sils,  make Obidos one of the most enjoyable villages in Portugal for visitors.

1

Sanctuary of Fatima

Starting this fantastic private tour, leaving from Lisbon, in one hour’s driving we will arrive at one of the largest shrines in the world, the Sanctuary of the Virgin Mary of Fatima. Here you will have the possibility to purchase  religious souvenir shopping for friends and family, which can then get blessed at the Sanctuary during the mass services. Time to visit the Shrine and attend mass (optional).
2

Monastery of Batalha

This monastery is the best example of the late Gothic architecture in Portugal, built in the XIV century to celebrate the great victory of Portuguese troops in the battle of Aljubarrota over the Castilians in 1385. It was to be the Portuguese monarchy’s main building project for the next two centuries. Here a highly original, national Gothic style evolved, profoundly influenced by the Portuguese Manueline architecture.
3

Fisherman’s village of Nazare

Continuing our Tour Fatima Batalha Nazare and Obidos, we arrive at the fisherman’s village of Nazare (Nazareth) the most charismatic fisherman’s village in Portugal, where we can see the fisherman’s wifes drying fish at the beach, as well as the costumes of the “seven skirts” women from Nazare, proudly shown to visitors. Lovely panoramic sight over the village through the “sitio”, where the legend of Dom Fuas Rupinho continues..
4

Obidos medieval village

Arriving at Obidos (UNESCO’s world heritage site), we will take you back in time, as we walk you through the beautiful and narrow streets along the white painted old houses. Inside the walls you will find a variety of regional handicraft shops, and you can also have a taste of the most famous liqueur in the area:  “Ginja de Obidos”.

My husband and I spent two days with Jorge Bras, touring the areas in and around Lisbon. We had a total of five guides during our visit to Portugal, and Jorge was our absolute favorite! Jorge is extremely knowledgable about Portugal’s history, very professional, but is also a warm and sincere person. We were sad to part ways, even knowing we had another week and half of our vacation left!

Jorge was instrumental in making our entire trip to Portugal extremely memorable and informative. And we cannot thank him enough for that.

We booked a 5 hr trip to Fatima through Walkborder due to the highly positive reviews and the 5 hr timeframe (others are an hour shorter, which is tough given 90 min ride from Lisbon). Jorge was our guide and was wonderful, not only with his insights about Fatima, but in sharing his insight and tips about Portugal.

We were picked up in a roomy Mercerdes van and Jorge was a delight throughout trip. He gave us layout of the Fatima grounds, explaining all the buildings and their significance, so we could use our time wisely. He also took us to a factory site (available only to tour groups) where you can shop for both religious and Portuguese items. Lastly, he drove us to village of the 3 children to see the homes they lived in.

One more thing, there was a big truck rollover on way to Fatima that delayed us a good half hr…Jorge extended the day so we wouldn’t be short-changed. Very gracious. Highly recommend this company. Wished we used them for Sintra too because it would have given us more insight and efficiency in spending our time there.

This was on a high note a spritual journey visiting the Fatima Church. This was an exhilarating experience at Fatima. João our ever dependable guide and driver gave us an indepth account of Fatima and the apparition . The church complex particularly the old church was in itself a wonderful experience. Obidos a beautiful village, medieval to the core and very quaint. these are locations not to be missed. A special bonus if you travel with Walkborder, a fantastic tour company with an outstanding guide João. ask for him.

“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.

Hugo at Walkborder Tours was amazingly knowledgeable, courteous and a charming guide. The vehicle was comfortable and he showed us everything we wished to see. Highly recommend by John from London.
