9.30 Meeting point at the hotel.

The tour starts from the town of Batalha were we will visit the Monastery of Santa Maria de Vitoria built in the XIV - XVI centuries (the best example of late Gothic in Portugal).

Next we head into the city of Fatima - the world center of pilgrimage, famous for the Marian apparitions that took place here in 1917. The grandeur of the square before the church can be estimated in figures: simultaneously accommodating 300,000 worshipers, twice the number as in St. Peter's Square in the Vatican City.

Next, we head for the city Alcobaça and its well-known monastery of XII century (Mosteiro de Alcobaça), striking not only for its size and architecture, but also rich in sacred monuments in honor of King Dom Pedro I and his mistress Inés de Castro (the real heroes of the romantic history of Portugal in the XIV century which is very reminiscent of the Romeo and Juliet drama) In this small but very cozy town you can try the amazing sweetness in a small cafe of the monastery, which are prepared by the most skillful chefs.

19:00 arrival in Lisbon. Assistance available for accommodation in a hotel.
