Join us for a Fatima Half Day Trip from Lisbon visiting the Sanctuary of Fatima and the Little Shepherds House. The best Lisbon day trips. This tour will take you to Fatima, one of Europe’s most prominent shrines, and its sanctuary, which is home to one of the world’s greatest pilgrimage centers. (Religious excursions)
We begin our tour at the famed Marian shrine, which was built around the spot where the Virgin Mary appeared to three young shepherds in 1917. Time to pray or join a celebration after viewing the Basilica where the three seers are buried, the Chapel of Apparitions, and the current Holy Trinity Church (optional).
We’ll leave for Valinhos, the little village where the three young shepherds were born, shortly after that. Allow us to chauffeur you in a Mercedes-Benz vehicle with air conditioning and WiFi, escorted by one of our qualified professional driver guides.
Lisbon – Fatima – Sanctuary of Fatima – Home of the Three Shepherds – Lisbon
This tour is exclusively dedicated to the region of Fatima and its most emblematic places. When we reach Fatima you can visit the Sanctuary grounds, a place of great symbolism. It was here that the figure of Our Lady presented herself to the Three Shepherds to communicate a set of revelations.
In Fatima, there is much to see, namely the Chapel of the Apparitions marking the most precise place where the events above took place. Today, the Sanctuary has become an impressive place of faith.
It is virtually impossible to remain indifferent to the energy that hangs in the air, even for non-believers. There are two basilicas here: Our Lady of the Rosary, made of stone and marble in neo-baroque style, and The Holy Trinity Basilica, the fourth largest Catholic church in the world in terms of capacity.
In addition to these sites at opposite points of the Sanctuary, you will have time to observe other places, such as the home of the Three Shepherds (Francisco and Jacinta Marto’s house and Lucia’s house), in the town of Aljustrel. In this space, we can find a faithful reconstruction of scenes from other times using old objects such as family photographs, clothes, kitchen utensils, furniture, among others. A unique tour through the faith and history of one of the most famous places in Portugal.
