Lisbon and Fatima

In Portugal see historic and colorful Lisbon, the world famous Shrine of Fatima, and the changing scenery of the countryside. The Sanctuary of Fatima was built in the 20th century after the apparitions of the Virgin Mary. It is the destination of an inner journey of Christian faith. It is one of the main Marian shrines of the world.

Seville

The Cathedral of Seville is the biggest Gothic cathedral in the world. It is a sign of its wide cultural and artistic past. Spain offers some of the richest cultural heritage to be found anywhere in Europe.
The Andalusia region being an excellent example with its unique blend of Roman, Arab and Catholic inspired influences. A journey along the back roads and through the mountain passes. This is the best way to discover the well-known icons as well as the charming lesser-known gems.

Toledo

One of the tour highlights is a visit to Toledo. A town that attracts more visitors from around the world than any other Spanish town. In this old walled town, built on a hill, you’ll visit the 12th-century Church of St. Tome, which has one of El Greco’s most famous paintings.

A visit of the Alhambra complex will delight you. Built in the 13th century by Moorish kings. Today it boasts one of the oldest decorative gardens in the Western World.

Portugal

In Portugal, visit the world-famous shrine in Fátima, dedicated to the Virgin Mary who appeared to three children here in 1917.

Enjoy sightseeing with a Local Guide in Toledo, Granada, Seville, Lisbon, Oporto, and Madrid. These experts in the cities’ histories and cultures will highlight the must-see sights, such as Seville’s Cathedral, the world’s third largest church; Lisbon’s Belem Tower, a UNESCO World Heritage Site built around 1514 to commemorate the expedition of Vasco de Gama and to defend the port of Lisbon; and Oporto’s cathedral, built between the 12th and 13th centuries in Romanesque style overlooking the port wine cellars on the banks of the Douro river.
