Our journey through Portugal, from Lisbon to Fatima

In Fátima, it is mandatory to pass through the Sanctuary of Fátima, one of the largest Marian pilgrimage points in the world and one of the most important international destinations (it receives about 6 million people a year ?)

It is a must-see if you are visiting Portugal. Remember to read a little about the history of the Virgin of Fatima before visiting the sanctuary so that you can appreciate and enjoy the visit at its best.

The Marian Route is a journey that mixes culture and devotion, art, spirituality and offers pilgrims and travelers a different way of approaching the Christian religion, it is a route that is visited by both Catholic believers and lovers of Portuguese heritage.

The Marian Route is an itinerary of cultural and religious interest that joins the following sanctuaries:

  • Sanctuary of Our Lady of the Pillar
  • Shrine of Our Lady of Torreciudad
  • Sanctuary of Montserrat 
  • Sanctuary of Our lady of Lourdes 
  • Sanctuary of Our Lady of Meritxell

It is a route visited by both devout Marians, heritage lovers and tourists.

If you want to know more, do not hesitate to contact me.

As soon as we finished our visit, and already hungry, we went to Nazaré

A pretty Portuguese town on the coast between Lisbon and Porto.

Interestingly, it is a site that receives more visits in November than in any other month of the year. There is much to see, its beaches, its corners, the hermitages, the lighthouse and especially the Batalha monastery.

We went straight to eat at Quinta do Fidalgo for lunch.


An extremely cozy place with an exquisite atmosphere and very attentive and super friendly collaborative people!

We went to eat with my SOMOS people and we adapted very well to the place right away.

If you want to feel at home in Nazaré this is the place, ask for Ana Fidalgo, the owner, she will show you the accommodations, the entrances with gardens and the views of the sea.

As always, if you want to take a trip to Fatima or Nazaré, do not hesitate to contact me.
