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.

Loved Nuno and worth every cent!
This is the perfect tour when you have only 6 days in Portugal! It is very fast because there is so much to see in only a day but like I said SO worth it when you only have so little days! Our tour guide Nuno was the cutest, older Portuguese man and always gave us the background and history of all the places he showed us. He also gave us the best recommendation of where to eat in Nazare! & Hands down was the best meal I had in Portugal during my trip thanks to him❣️ I am so happy I booked this tour. Thank you Nuno❣️

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.

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. Buses depart regularly from Sete Rios bus station in Lisbon or Batalha bus station in Porto. The rides take 90 or 120 minutes respectively. There is a train station servicing Fátima, but it’s located 12 miles (20 kilometers) outside of town, making it a less convenient option.
