The Basics

Fátima is second only to Lourdes in France as Europe’s most important pilgrimage site, with a history and culture that will fascinate the religious and nonreligious alike. While some Catholics opt to visit during a pilgrimage, you can also visit the town and its religious sites—particularly the Basilica de Fátima—on a day trip from Lisbon or Porto. Choose between a half-day tour to Fátima and a full-day sightseeing tour with stops at other historic points of interest. Guided tours often include stops at other points of interest, including Óbidos, Nazaré, and Batalha. Travelers pressed for time can see the town on a half-day tour.

Fátima Half Day Private Tour from Lisbon
Rui was an excellent driver and the car was very clean and comfortable. He was a very knowledgeable guide on all sorts of topics about Portugal. Fatima was definitely worth a visit especially if you are from the Catholic faith.

Full-day Fátima, Nazaré, and Óbidos Small-Group Tour from Lisbon
This tour was great. Our tour guide, Tania, was knowledgeable, engaging, and thoughtful with her explanations of the sites we toured. There was also time allotted for us to go out on our own and experience the sites as you wanted. The van was very clean and comfortable. I would highly recommend this tour.

Fátima, Nazaré, and Óbidos Small-Group Day Trip from Lisbon
Being at Fatima gave me goose bumps. To see the tree that Our Lady appeared in was incredible. Our guide, Albert Teves was great…informative, attentive and fun! Another high point for me was seeing the home of the 100 foot waves, Nazare! I highly recommend this experience! 🌺

Lisbon Super Saver: 2-Day Sintra, Cascais, Fatima, Nazare and Obidos Small-Group Day Trips
Got into the castle as Sintra before the masses of tourists- as we left, there were hundreds in line for entrance to the property and a long line for the castle tour. Not enough time in the village of Sintra- this tour could easily be only Sintra but drove out to the ocean and west of Lisbon to Cascias which was good for a gelato only- Obidos, Fatima were ok- a lot of driving. Saw Fatima 1 day before an anniversary so there were lots of pilgrims and tourists.

Divine Fátima Full Day Private Tour
We “thought “ we knew the miracle of Fatima; however, with Daniel’s excellent, thorough, and inspiring guidance, Fatima came alive for us. He took us to every site and even introduced us to the children’s relative; a lovely lady of 101 years old.

Things to Know Before You Go

How to Get There

Fátima is 88 miles (142 kilometers) north of Lisbon. The easiest way to get there is on a guided tour, but it’s also possible to travel independently.

There is a train station servicing Fátima, but it’s located 12 miles (20 kilometers) outside of town, making it a less convenient option.
