Sanctuary of Fatima

The Chapel of the Apparitions, the first Chapel to be built immediately following the apparitions occupying a prominent place, not by size or grandeur, but yes by the location, practically in the center of the Sanctuary.

The Basilica of Our Lady of the Rosary, built in 1928 in Neo Baroque style, it houses today the tombs of the children, but also the tomb of Sister Lucia who passed away in 2005, and the Basilica of Santissima Trindade, built in 2007 with more than 8000 seats and 40,000 m² of area was designed by the Greek architect Alexandros Tombazis, a modern and quite imposing church.

Batalha Monastery

The bare stone of warm tonality makes of the Monastery of Batalha an important landmark of the history of Portugal, in a period of reaffirmation of its independence on Castile (Spain)

A late-Gothic building, the result of the wise management of the greatest Portuguese and international masters from its founder master Afonso Domingues to the genial Huguet ending in Mateus Fernandes’s “Manueline style”, the Founder’s Chapel and the “Imperfect Chapels” to be the pantheon of kings and princes marked by the scholasticism of the Dominican friars representing the Celestial City.

Alcobaca Monastery ( optional )

The Alcobaça Monastery a founding monument of the Cistercian Gothic in Portugal, built in the 12th century, the Church of the Abbey follows the model of Pontigny, in France in an architecture applied to the central nave with more than a hundred imposing meters length, where the monks roam in prayer, sustained by arches, the first specimens in Portuguese territory.

Another curiosity, the kitchen and the solutions applied here to bring water to a wide space and already with hygiene concerns.

Here are guarded from the most beautiful tombs of the Gothic funerary sculpture guarded by the immortal lovers, D.Pedro and D. Inês, the murdered queen where the arches, veiled by angels, announce the day of revenge.

Couple Traveller

My husband and I spent two days with Jorge Bras, touring the areas in and around Lisbon. We had a total of five guides during our visit to Portugal, and Jorge was our absolute favorite! Jorge is extremely knowledgable about Portugal’s history, very professional, but is also a warm and sincere person. We were sad to part ways, even knowing we had another week and half of our vacation left!

Jorge was instrumental in making our entire trip to Portugal extremely memorable and informative. And we cannot thank him enough for that.
