Full description

After the pickup at your hotel, this private guided tour begins with the trip to Fatima, the Religious Center of Portugal.

Visit the Aljustrel House Museum, where the three little shepherds were born. Canonized by Pope Francis in Fatima, the three cousins are narrators of incredible religious stories! Have you heard of the "Miracle of the Sun"? This is the perfect opportunity to unveil the stunning stories told by Lúcia, Francisco and Jacinto - the three shepherds of Fátima. 

Come and visit the Sanctuary of Fátima, built in the exact location of the apparitions of the Virgin Mary and take the opportunity to learn all about this historical phenomenon. Inside the majestic Sanctuary, you will find the Basilica of Our Lady of the Rosary and the Chapel of the Apparitions, important buildings that tell part of the history of these children.

This is the perfect place for relaxing, and to understand your inner self. Believer or not, you cannot escape to the magical feeling of this tremendous area, full of secrets and stories to tell you. Observe the inspiring devotion of many pilgrims from all over the world and take some time to experience the spiritual environment of this sacred place.

Get to know the new work of the well-known plastic artist, Joana Vasconcelos, a beautiful girdle called "Suspensão" (Suspension). A work that caused controversy by its bold structure

Light a candle and let yourself be impressed by the wonderful neoclassical style of the buildings. The Sanctuary of Fatima is a very large space, so you will have the freedom to walk and visit the spaces that please you the most. We also recommend you observe the segment of the Berlin Wall, donated in 1994 as a "symbol of peace".

Indulge in an excellent lunch and continue your guided tour to Coimbra, the University cityIn fact, its University is the ex-libris of the city, dated from the 13th century and declared a World Heritage Site

Our first stop is at the beautiful Monastery of Santa Clara-a-Nova, a truly Franciscan cloistered monastery.

It is time to visit the prestigious University of Coimbra, considered a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. It's easy to understand why: its monumental buildings and exquisite stories attract audiences from all over the world. Look around and observe the strong student traditions that can be felt in the University - you will be amazed by the student's uniform! Have time to admire the stunning views over the city. 

Familiarize yourself with some of the most interesting points of Coimbra: the long staircase of the "Quebra Costas", the traditional shops, the old narrow streets and the typical neighborhoods of the historic center.

This private and exclusive visit full of good surprises ends when we leave you comfortably at the door of your hotel.
