A national shrine, the sanctuary is built on the spot where the first of six apparitions of the Virgin Mary were said to be witnessed by three shepherd children: Lúcia, Francisco and Jacinta. Their children’s tombs are within the sanctuary walls, as well as a beautiful Neoclassical church that’s dedicated to their memory. Head inside the church for mass (lasting roughly 30 minutes) and gaze in awe at the serene yet majestic surroundings while worshiping.

This was a wonderful tour! We were picked up from our hotel in Porto and went to Fatima first. On our way to Fatima, Claudia gave us information on Portugal's history, Fatima's history, what to expect weather-wise, and pointed out all the storks that were nesting near the highway.
We picked a perfect date to visit Fatima on the 12th of May it wasn't crowded and there were very few lines.
On the way back to Porto, we stopped and visited Coimbra. It is a very nice city, lots to see and a lot of history here.
The only complaint of the entire tour is not enough time at each of these locations! We would have been happy to have left earlier left hotel at 0830 and returned later returned about 1730 in order to have spent more time at each of these beautiful locations.
