Tour description provided by Viator

Head out on a private tour to Fatima, the religious capital of Portugal famous for and its basilica that honors the appearance of Our Lady of Fatima (another name for the Virgin Mary) in 1917. On this private tour, you’ll visit Sanctuary Square, location of the shrine, which is twice the size of St Peters Square in the Vatican – it’s quite impressive! Your luxury vehicle has a panoramic glass sunroof, allowing you to enjoy excellent views on the trip from Lisbon.

On this private tour from Lisbon, you'll journey north to the town of Fatima, famous for a religious experience three children had about 100 years ago. On May 13, 1917, three peasant children claimed to have seen an apparition of Our Lady of the Rosary (aka Our Lady of Fatima, aka the Blessed Virgin Mary). This event turned this small town, a rocky rural village that produced olive oil, into one of the most important religious sites in the world. You’ll visit Sanctuary Square, where the basilica commemorates the apparition and protects the mortal remains of the three children. It overlooks the massive square and easily holds the thousands of people who gather here each year. If you’d like, you can light a candle like the pilgrims do in search of the protection of Our Lady of Fatima.
