Start with pickup at your Lisbon accommodation and head first to the mysterious Grutas da Moeda Caves in an air-conditioned car. Travel back 150 million years as you tour the caves, whose stalagmites and stalactites are illuminated with colored lights.
Take the short journey to Fatima — a holy pilgrimage site that attracts more than four million pilgrims each year — to see the UNESCO-listed Fatima Sanctuary and the shrine dedicated to the Virgin Mary, who reputedly appeared in a vision to three shepherd children in the 19th century.
Be amazed by the Chapel of Apparitions and the Church of the holy Trinity, and observe pilgrims as they light candles and ask for blessings. Next, you’ll visit two of Portugal’s most alluring religious landmarks: the UNESCO-listed monasteries of Batalha and Alcobaca.
Observe the grand Gothic architecture of each structure during a guided tour, and then return to your accommodations.
