  • Day3 - 4
    Your day on Portugal’s “Silver Coast” begins in the the medieval walled town of Óbidos. After that we visit the quaint town of Nazaré. It is said that the picturesque village of Nazaré got its name from a statue of the Virgin Mary brought to town from Nazareth by a monk in the 4th century. High above the town is Sitio, reached by a funicular that climbs 110m (360ft). All of Nazaré can be seen from here, and across the square is the 17th century Nossa Senhora da Nazare Church with two Baroque belfries and 18th century tiles depicting Biblical scenes. It also contains a revered image of Our Lady of Nazareth that is taken down to the sea in a traditional procession every September. Nazaré is famous for its women who wear skirts with seven petticoats, women would sit on the beach waiting for their fishermen to sail home. To keep warm in the face of a cold sea wind while staying modestly covered, they'd wear several petticoats in order to fold layers around their backs and legs. Today Nazaré is Portugal's most famous fishing village, having always drawn visitors to its beach and genuinely colorful life. Finally we visit pilgrimage town of Fatima. Join the faithful at one of the world’s holiest sites and pay homage at the Chapel of Apparitions. Overnight in Porto.
