An unforgettable experience
We are going to start by heading to Fátima, one of the most known pilgrimage destinations in Europe, visited by 4 million people every year. We will visit the sanctuary at the place where the apparitions of the Virgin took place in 1917 and you will have some time to pray, light a candle. . .
We'll also be able to visit the houses where the children used to live, a couple of miles away from the sanctuary, and the places where the Angel appeared.
One of my first guide trainings was in Fatima, where I lived for a couple of months in 2007, and I have been taking pilgrims there for several years. I will make sure you get the best out of your special day!

Ines did a fantastic job making the tour perfect for our specific requests. Her knowledge of the area and about the shepards was impressive, adding her knowledge of the locals that made the day even more special. Loved the entire day!
