  • Duration: 9 hours (approx.)
  • Tour code: 5383FATNAZOBIDOS
Discover the history and natural beauty of Portugal on a small-group day trip to Fátima, Nazaré and Óbidos from Lisbon. One of the most important Christian sites in the world, Fátima is home to the Sanctuary of Fatima, which honors the 1917 apparition of Our Lady of Fatima (another name for the Virgin Mary). After your visit, you’ll explore the coastal fishing town of Nazaré and the medieval village of Óbidos, stopping at the Batalha Monastery, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, on the way. Enjoy picturesque views of the Atlantic Ocean and agricultural landscapes as you travel along the dramatic cliffs of the Portugal coast. Throughout your tour, you’ll learn interesting facts and hear stories from your guide.

Highlights

  • Day trip (destination A to B)
  • Enjoy a day away from the hustle and bustle of the city
  • Includes free admission to top local attractions
  • Pickup from a centrally located meeting point
While you are in Lisbon, head north on a day trip to the beautiful villages of Fátima, Nazaré and Óbidos. Get comfortable in an air-conditioned vehicle as you start your journey toward the town of Fátima, a once-sleepy rural village that became an important pilgrimage site when three shepherd children reported apparitions of the Virgin Mary in 1917. Visit the Sanctuary of Fatima, a basilica that honors the apparition and attracts millions of Catholic pilgrims every year who go to pay their respects to the shrine.

Next, visit the 14th-century Batalha Monastery, a UNESCO World Heritage Site that illustrates the rich artistic heritage of the late 1300s. Discover the impressive royal burial site at the basilica’s Founder’s Chapel, where King João I, Queen Philippa of Lancaster and their son Prince Henry the Navigator were buried.

Take a short break for lunch (own expense) in Nazaré, a quaint fishing town famous for its variety of restaurants and cafes. A popular summer retreat for the Portuguese, the village offers an interesting insight into local life. Next, head to the Nazaré cliffs and continue through the picturesque villages of Foz do Arelho and São Martinho do Porto. Admire views of agricultural fields and the Atlantic Ocean as you drive along the dramatic, cliff-lined coast.

Finally, make your way to the medieval village of Óbidos. Founded in 208 BC, Óbidos is commonly known in Portugal as the 'wedding present town', as it was a gift from King Dinis to Queen Isabel on their wedding day in 1282. Follow your guide to one of the numerous wine shops and sample the Ginja liqueur, and then enjoy free time to explore the village’s medieval fortress, narrow streets, colorful houses and Gothic doorways and windows decorated with flowerpots and dazzling tiles. Grab a snack or browse around the tiny shops that offer a varied collection of beautiful handmade ceramic art before making your way back to Lisbon.

I had a fantastic time on this tour yesterday! Our guide Jaime was extremely friendly, knowledgeable, flexible, and fun the entire day. Our group was very small 7 tourists total, which definitely made the tour more personable. The highlights for me were the stops in Fátima, Batalha, and Nazaré. Definitely choose to go into the Monastery of Batalha as it was very beautiful and has a unique history. In Nazaré, take up Jaime's recommendation for a local fish restaurant Rosa Dos Ventos because it was delicious!

For those who are doing this tour to specifically experience Fátima, the only downside is that only an hour is spent there. Please keep that in mind when booking. However, the other locations were amazing and not to be missed! I'm very glad to have experienced them all in one day!
