What To Expect

Lisbon awaits its visitors to show them the colours of its ruas. Fatima is the Catholic pilgrimage city per excellence. The Alfama district, located at the foot of the Castle of Sao Jorge and shows the nature of the old fishermen neighbourhood. Its picturesque tiny streets are wonderful to get lost in and to discover the charm of the city. Alfama, which is one of the oldest districts of Lisbon, is a delightful maze of narrow cobbled streets and ancient houses, leading up the steep hill from the Tejo Estuary to the castle. There are many historic buildings including the Se Cathedral, the Castle, the National Pantheon and Saint Anthony's Church which resides within this diverse and charismatic district. It is known that Alfama was situated outside of the city walls and was associated with poverty and squalor, where only the poor and disadvantaged resided. Today, Alfama has shrugged off its grim reputation, being transformed into a fashionable artisan district, while still retaining its character and dilapidated charm.

The Sanctuary of Fatima, built in the 20th century after the apparitions of the Virgin, is the destination of an inner journey of Christian faith. It is one of the main Marian shrines of the world. The Shrine of Fatima is known to attract lots of tourist and Catholics pilgrims from across the world as it is known to be a place where three Portuguese children have reported seeing a figure of the Virgin Mary. The shrine attracts a large number of tourists, and it is also known that every year, from May 13th and October 13th, which is also known as the date of Fatima Partitions, pilgrims fill the country road that leads to the shrine. Overall, about four million pilgrims visit the basilica every year. One of the most important features of the Fatima Sanctuary is the Irish Monstrance, which is considered as the most significant works of religious art from Ireland, and is also the treasury that the sanctuary holds.
