Hi, we are planning to arrive in Lisbon the third week of October, and want to visit Fatima.
Could you inform us the best way to go for a day. We would like to avoid tours, because they spend too much time in the souveniers stores
Is it possible to go on our own, going in the morning returning in the afternoon.
We are an elderly couple and would like to avoid driving
All possible information is welcome. Thank YOU !
I am in the uS and would like to purchase some wax ex votes. Anyone have a website to order or willing to ship ?
I am planning to visit Batalha and fatima in one go. Is there any bus connecting these two towns? If yes, can someone tell me the bus company?
Thanks a lot
Hi, is anyone aware of any walking tours of Basilica of our lady of fatima for dates 31 March 2014 or 1 April 2014. If so, can you please share details - it would be much appreciated.
4 people travelling together, arriving Lisbon by air in late May. I wonder we should drive rather than by bus for the convenience and flexibility. I have researched and aware of the buses from Lisbon to Fatima, Fatima to Santeram, and Fatima to Santiago. The estimated total bus fares is about 80+ euro including a round trip between Fatima and Santarem, and Lisbon airport to city. We would have to pay more for a car for sure.
If we drive, we will probably have to return the car off in Oporto and take a bus across to avoid the excessive one-way drop charge, or to drive to Santiago and back to Oporto to return the car. We can fly out of Santiago or Oporto to Madrid or Barcelona.
Is it safe to drive in Portugal and across to Santiago? I read much about the high speed drivers in Portugal.
Thanks in advance!
how to get from lisbon airport to Fatima on May 13, 2014
Is there a tour from porto to lisbon, then to fatima, and back to porto?
What are the prices for Porto to Fatima and Lisbon tour via train or bus?
I am going to Fatima on 13 Oct when there will be NO PRIVATE TOURS going there. Can any one tell me if I were to take the train which stop should I get off and can I take a bus after to the Sanctuary? Many thanks. Betsy
Please tell me how I get from the Combois Portugal train station at Fatima to Fatima Shrine, all people says by bus, which company? So I can see by the internet the schedule's busses. Thanks!!
Does anything special go on? Any masses in languages other than Portuguese?
Where could I spend some hours after visiting Fatima? Nazarè, Obidos? I have to rely on public transportation so I have to look for a easy (and nice) place to go from Fatima.
Is it possible to visit both Fatima and Obidos in a day? I mean, if it is feasible to travel between these two places by bus.
We will be staying in Fatima on a Monday night and have a special occasion to celebrate. Can anyone recommend a romantic, authentic, nice Portuguese restaurant in Fatima or nearby? We are travelling by car.
My friends and I are driving to Fatima next month.
Aside from the main shrine and chapel, we would like to visit
Aljustrel, Valinhos, and Loca da Anjo to see the homes of Franciso and Jacinta,and Lucia, and the museum (in Aljustreal) monuments/scuptures (in Valinhos and Loca da Anjo) among others. All that I could find is that it is within 3 KM of the main shrine; somewhere near the south rotunda (de Santa Teresa).
Where exactly are these places? Are they three different places and far from each other? Does anyone have an exact address, name of a street, or specific directions so we can drive to it?
I also read there is a "little train" that can take us there. Is there a train schedule for this?
Lastly: the Via Sacra. 14/15 stations of the cross (+ Ressurection) that starts near Aljustrel/south Rotunda de Santa Teresa, and ends in the Calvary Shrine. It is laid out in the "path" that the shepherds took from Aljustrel to Cova De Iria so I am assuming you cannot drive along this route. Question: How far is the last station/Calvary from the main Basilica, i.e. can you easily walk to it from the main Basilica?
Thank you for your anticipated replies.
I hope this e-mail finds you well.
