Religious and Historic Portugal Mini-Break Coach Tour
Fatima Sanctuary
Basilica  Begun in 1928 and consecrated on 7 October 1953, its 15 altars are dedicated to the 15 mysteries of the Rosary.  The painting above the high altar depicts the Message of Our Lady to the little shepherds, prepared by the Angel of Portugal, through their encounter with Christ in the Eucharist.

Batalha, The name and the history of the town are the history of its Monastery of ´santa Maria da Vitória (St. Mary of the Victory). Three years had passed from August 14th 1385, the date of the Aljubarrota battle, when the Monastery´s construction began in fulfillment of the vow made by King John I to the Virgin Mary. The king had promised to build a monastery if he was successful in that historical battle. This was a decisive battle for the consolidation of the Portuguese independence and also for the establishment of the Avis dynasty.

Religious and Historic Portugal Mini-Break Coach Tour
The Monastery, UNESCO´s World Heritage, was built not on the battlefield, but 3 km away, in the valley of the Lena River, to allow the presence of a monastic community. This magnificent building is the Portuguese final Gothic greatest monument, one of the first to receive Manuelin art decoration and one of the most beautiful European churches of the late Middle Ages.
