Full description
Avoid the restricted timetables of other sightseeing tours and learn the history of Fátima at your own pace. Get an interactive folder to guide you around the shrine at leisure. Go to the Chapel of the Apparitions, built where Our Lady appeared to 3 shepherd children in May 1917. Visit the Monument of the Sacred Heart of Jesus in the center of the sanctuary, designed to represent the central position Jesus plays in the message. Next, visit the Basilica of Our Lady of the Rosary of Fátima, where the mortal remains of the seers are buried at the site where the shepherd children were playing before Our Lady appeared. See the path that the pilgrims take on their knees to pay for their promises. Look inside the Church of the Most Holy Trinity, designed by the architect Alexandros Tombazis to celebrate the 90th anniversary of the apparitions. Finally see the Tall Cross erected in 2007 in the grounds of the Santissima Trindade Church.

Our self- guided tour did not happen- after a delay, we were offered a full day tour to Fatima, Batalha, Nazare, and Obidos at no extra cost, which we took, even though we had previously seen above sites- tour guide Ana was wonderful, spoke three languages fluently, and went out of her way to make this tour a great experience for us, letting us have her front row seats -and the tour wasn’t rushed even after the morning delay and some road construction traffic-

There was enough time

The departure was announced for 08.40 and was then delayed by 30 minutes. The lost time was made up, so that there is no deduction of points. Unfortunately, one of our two audio guides didn't work. The trip itself went well! All in all, the Fatima excursion was worth it!
