Follow the beautiful Portuguese Camino to Fátima which follows the pathway of the Caminho del Mar from the lovely coastal town of Cascais and finish up in the globally important site of Fátima.
Your journey along this Camino route begins in the gorgeous seaside town of Cascais Estoril, making its way alongside the coast for the first day before beginning its journey inland through the spectacular natural park of Sintra Cascais.
Along the way you will pass through many fascinating towns. Explore one of Europes finest palaces when you visit Mafras Palacio Nacional. The palace is so vast it contains a huge monastery, beautiful gardens, an ornate basilica and a library with over 36,000 ancient books.
From the relatively flat portuguese coastal plain follow the Camino to Fátima as it crosses though the hills and natural park of the Serras de Aire to reach the important Catholic pilgrimage site of Fátima.
Fátima is reportedly the site where the Blessed Virgin Mary appeared to three shepherd children back in 1917. The site has ever since been a centre for catholic devotion and is visited each year by thousands of pilgrims who wish to visit the beautiful Sanctuary of Our Lady of Fátima.
