Fátima

Portugal’s religious capital attracts millions of pilgrims every year, due to its mystical power and atmosphere. It can hold about 300 thousand faithful followers at the same time and is twice the size of Saint Peter’s Square in the Vatican City.

 

Batalha Monastery

This exceptional architectural ensemble is the result of the fulfillment of a promise made by King João I of Portugal in gratitude for the victory in Aljubarrota, a battle fought on August 14th, 1385, which secured the throne and guaranteed the independence of Portugal. It is one of the most beautiful works of Gothic and Manueline architecture. Nowadays, Batalha Monastery is considered a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Alcobaça

This exceptional architectural ensemble is the result of the fulfillment of a promise made by King João I of Portugal in gratitude for the victory in Aljubarrota, a battle fought on August 14th, 1385, which secured the throne and guaranteed the independence of Portugal. It is one of the most beautiful works of Gothic and Manueline architecture. Nowadays, Batalha Monastery is considered a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Tomar

After the extinction of the Knights Templars in 1312, King Dinis creates a new religious militia the Military Order of Our Lord Jesus Christ, claiming the need to defend Portugal from Islam. The headquarters of the Order of Christ is set up in the former Knights Templars headquarters in 1357 where it will remain for centuries. Regarded as one of the greatest monastic complex in Europe was classified by UNESCO as a world heritage site in 1983. Inside we can see the Charola, the Knights round temple, the unique western window designed in Portuguese late gothic style and the main cloister, a masterpiece of Renaissance architecture.

Coimbra

Making a quick stop close by the river and at the university to visit the outside and to see the amazing view over the river.

Rising scenically from the Rio Mondego, Coimbra is an animated city steeped in history. It was Portugal’s medieval capital for more than a century and it’s home to the country’s oldest and most prestigious university. It’s steeply stacked historic centre dates to Moorish times and is wonderfully atmospheric, with its dark cobbled lanes and monumental cathedral.

Aveiro

Stop in the city center for you to have the opportunity to see the canals, and if possible/available to do a boat tour in the canals. Unique experience.

Known as the Venice of Portugal, Aveiro is surrounded by salt-flats, beaches and lagoons and dominated by the Central Canal running through town. Once a big sea port, Aveiro lies in a region of valleys cut by mountains and fertile lagoon plains.
The city of Aveiro is crossed by canals, which give it quite an individual character, and in the old quarter tourists can see the quaint whitewashed houses of the fishermen and visit, early in the morning, the Mercado do Peixe, an auction of the fish caught during the night. Of all the boats seen in the area, the moliceiro is the most elegant, being perfectly lined, painted with bright colours and with often ingenious and humorous decorations.

Optional Stops:
Alcobaça Monastery

World Heritage Site by UNESCO. The works of this 12th-century monument begun in 1178 and lasted for 100 years, through various stages of construction. The Monastery of Alcobaça is known for its impressive gothic architecture and greatest love story in the history of Portugal – the tragic passion of D. Pedro and D. Inês de Castro.
