In the following months, always on 13, apparitions continued until October, the day that happened the famous miracle of the sun, witnessed by 70,000 people.
Since those days until today, millions of pilgrims from all over the world, go annually to the Sanctuary of Fatima, keeping alive a religious tradition of 97 years.
In this special program, you will visit the beautiful Sanctuary, and also visit the city of Lisbon and Porto.
Day 1: Arrival at Lisbon airport. Reception and transfer to the hotel. Since there is a lot to enjoy in the city of Fado, musical genre which was recently considered as World Heritage, we suggest a nice dinner in one of the city’s house of Fados and fall in love with one of the many city charms.
Day 2: Explore the city of Lisbon and its many charms. Rich in history, monuments and many museums, we suggest to start with the waterfront of the Tago river where the age of discoveries started. Known for inspiring many artists and poets, let yourself be immersed by all of its beauty and experience on of the many Light&Glaze moments or, if you prefer privacy you may take a private tour to many of the city emblematic places.
Day 3: After collecting the rental car, depart for Sintra, a place full of magic and romance, where you can visit several monuments of great architectural beauty and historical value. The journey then continues to Mafra and Ericeira, where you can visit the Convent of Mafra. If you are a lover of a good seafood meal, Ericeira is the ideal place to have lunch. Then go to Obidos, a medieval village full of history and charm, where time seems to have stopped. Do not forget to taste a delicious cherry liqueur Obidos! In the late afternoon, visit Alcobaça, where you’ll find the magnificent Monastery of Alcobaça, and finally you’ll reach Batalha, where you stay overnight beside a magnificent monument.
Days 4 and 5: Days fully dedicated to the Sanctuary of Fatima. On the next day, you can drive further north of Portugal, making a stop at the Coimbra zone where you can visit the remains of the ancient Roman city of Conímbriga. Is also noteworthy the University of Coimbra and its library. The day ends with the Douro River in Oporto.
Day 6: To this day, our suggestion is a journey of discovery by the Minho region, where you will discover the city of Viana do Castelo, Braga and Guimarães, birthplace of Portugal, whose historical center is considered cultural heritage of humanity by UNESCO. A journey full of charm, history and a lot of tradition.
Day 7: Day dedicated to the Oport. It is a beautiful city, situated in the north of Portugal and on the shores of the Douro River. Classified as World Heritage by UNESCO, in the city you can find beautiful historical monuments, among which we highlight the Cathedral and the Tower of Clerics. But the beauty of the city, is also related to Douro river, which had a preponderant role in the history of one of the ex libris of the city: the famous Port wine. If that were not enough, the Oport can still find a wide variety of cultural events, where museums have ranked high.
Day 11: Check out from hotel and departure to Oporto airport.
