Pilgrimage tour

Pilgrimage tour
Portugal | Spain | France | Italy | Bosnia & Herzegovina

Portugal offers a variety of destinations for religious travels: roadmaps of temples, cathedrals, devotions and religious festivals that you can follow out of faith or a more universal spirituality - whether in search of the sacred or on a journey of self-discovery.

Starting in Fátima, Capital of Peace and one of the world’s most important Marian pilgrimage sites. There are many reasons for visiting, whether you are following the Cathedral route or to discover the simple shrines and chapels in honour of the local patron saint. In Lisbon you can also visit the house where, allegedly, St. Anthony was born. It is near the old "Sea Door", located in the access to the interior wall of the once medieval Lisbon. Currently this place is considered as a sanctuary of its own, where a small museum was built and dedicated to him.
