Sacred site of Fatima, one of most famous Marian Shrines in the World, and Coimbra, land of students.
Fatima is one of the most famous Marian shrines in the world.
Four million people visit this sacred site each year, drawn by apparitions of the Virgin Mary reported by three local shepherd children in 1917.
Explore the Shrine of Our Lady Fatima including the world-renowned Basilica with its spectacular stained glass windows and paintings, the Chapel of Apparitions, Statutes of the visionaries of Fatima and the Monument to the Sacred Heart of Jesus.
This tour includes a visit to Coimbra: place of narrow streets, patios, stairways and medieval arches. It overlooks the river Mondego and was the cradle of birth of six kings of Portugal and the First Dynasty.
Coimbra is also well known to be the first University in the country: one of the oldest in the world, registered in 1290. It has a rich historical, architectural and cultural heritage, a precious common heritage of humanity. Now recognized by UNESCO, Coimbra is a land of the students.
