An unforgettable day through the ocean, medieval and religious history
Let's start our tour with charming ÓBIDOS, surrounded by medieval walls. We must take a walk through its maze flourished streets and whitewashed houses. After strolling around for a while, you'll get the courage to try ginginha -the local liquor made of cherry.
Then, we'll visit NAZARÉ, by the Atlantic Ocean. Here's where the BIGGEST WAVE in the world was surfed, and we can go for lunch on the beach. I'd recommend fish.
To finish we can either visit:
- Also worth a visit is BATALHA and its Gothic monastery which we can't miss. That is World Heritage Site by the UNESCO and it is over 600 years old.
-the beautiful real Portuguese Romeo and Juliet story in 12th century ALCOBAÇA Monastery or
-FÁTIMA, the most visited Sanctuary in Portugal where Our Lady appeared to 3 young shepherds in 1917 which attracts between 4 and 6 millions people to visit Fatima each year.
If Fátima is your priority we can be there as long as you want and then we'll visit one or more towns depending on the time we'll have left.

Gloria's passion, expertise, knowledge and dedication is second to none. She organized me a day tour to Batalha. Fátima and Alcobaça. These are some of the hidden gems yet important, beautiful and historically significant places of Portugal. She also took me to a local pastry store in Alcobaça. I had a really great time with her. Unequivocally recommend Gloria if you wish to know more about hercountry's rich culture and fascinating history.
