Experience

Highlights
  • Visit Joanne Library, considered one of the most beautiful libraries in the world
  • Explore Coimbra and the oldest European University
  • Discover the medieval village of Obidos or historic Fatima
Full description
Begin by visiting Coimbra University, the oldest in Europe. The Joanine Library was built in the 18th century on the former prison. Its decoration was finished in the 18th century and the renovation included ceiling frescoes by Mestre António Ribeiro and Vicente Nunes. The portrait of Dom Joao V was done by the Italian Domenico Dupra. Visit other interesting places at the University including Saint Michel Chapel, Sala dos Capelos, and the cabra (bell) tower. Then, head downtown, between the Mondego river and the University, to a street where you can relax and get lost in the charming city. You will find countless cafes, pastry shops, and restaurants. Rich in culture and with unforgettable gastronomy, this area has been the commercial center of the city for hundreds, if not thousands of years, maintaining its genuine atmosphere and unique personality. 

Choose to visit either Fatima or Obidos for your final stop before Lisbon. In Obidos, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, travel back in time as you walk through the beautiful narrow streets full of traditional shops. Admire the old white houses and imagine how the medieval period would have looked and felt. Obidos was a wedding gift from D. Dinis to his wife D. Isabel and the village became part of the Casa das Rainhas until 1834, leaving the orders of D. Catarina to build an aqueduct and fountains. At the Sanctuary of Fatima, visit three places of interest. Choose to attend a mass at the Chapel of the Apparitions, the first Chapel built following the apparitions. It occupies a prominent place practically in the center of the Sanctuary. Visit the Basilica of Our Lady of the Rosary, built in 1928 in Neo-Baroque style. It houses the tomb of Sister Lucia who passed away in 2005. See the Basilica of Santissima Trindade, built in 2007 with more than 8,000 seats and an area of 40,000 meters squared. It was designed by the Greek architect Alexandros Tombazis and is a modern imposing church.

NO IDEA

THE VALUE OF THE TOUR WAS TOO HIGH FOR THE RECEIVED, FIRST MR GUIA HAD NO IDEA OF THE CONTRACTED TOUR, OF THE CONTRACTED TRAVEL IF IT IS NOT WHY WE INDICATE YOU, HE WOULD NOT KNOW. FATIMA DOES NOT ACCOMPANY US OR GUIDE WHY I JUST WAS NOT ABLE TO PARK. THEIR STORIES DID NOT LOOK AS AN EXPERIENCED GUIDE, LITTLE HISTORY A LOT I'm sorry for Carlos because he is a very good person, but we don't like him. VERY EXPENSIVE AND FOR NOTHING GOOD
