Hotel location --is this outside of Fatima?

Hello!

We plan to be in Fatima on May 12 but couldn't find any lodging at this time. I'm considering to stay at Hotel Torres, Novas located at Praca 5 De Outubro, Torres, Novas as an option. Can someone please give me a hint how close is this hotel to Fatima Sanctuary. We are not driving so we will depend on public transport, i.e. bus.

Appreciate any info you can provide.

Hello, 64novpt!

Thanks for all the hotel links! For some reason, I couldn't connect to their website. Others I've contacted and there's no availability. Also, I've contacted the sanctuary site and they sent me quite an extensive list--some replied with no availability; others they want 2 nights booking. Fortunately, one of the posters, shethinks, have found one and I went ahead and booked. My lucky day!!!

What a big help you all are!!! Thank you.

Hello, again!

Regarding Rede-Expressos....I went to the link just to see how it works. Looks like May schedule and ticket reservation/purchase is not up yet. Does anyone know approximately when that is up? I realize that it's best to book well in advance. When filling up the destination information...I should specify my departure city is LISBOA and arrival city is FATIMA---is that correct?

Thank you!

That is correct!

One can only purchase tickets online +-two weeks before.

You are correct:

Select: Lisboa

Select: Fatima

FTHW, I think it was Shethinks not Shetlinks!

The latter sounds like a Golf Course near Lerwick! ;)))

LOL, my apologies to Shethinks (nice name you created there!). No matter what name, she's 'the angel from Fatima' :)

Hi,

Do you know if there are any self-catering house in Fatima. I am planning a trip during the Holy week with my family - mother, husband, daughters (4yrs and 4months). Budget accommodation is what we are looking at.

Thank you

I have had a quick look on the Portuguese web and cannot find anything immediately to hand.

There is a list of all hostelries V registered with the tourist authorities here:

You could also try contacting the Sanctuary Lodgings Service:
