Religious Tourism

Fátima

Portugal offers a roadmap of temples, devotions and religious festivals that you can follow out of faith or driven by 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.

The Jews have also left their mark, particularly in Central Portugal, providing another reason for exploration. And there are also many paths travelled by pilgrims today, retracing the steps taken long ago to Santiago de Compostela.

After all, we are united in the same spirit of equality in difference, joined in a common cause which is the ancestral openness to others that is characteristic of the Portuguese. Motivated by this genuine predisposition for empathy and hospitality, in which we believe, we gladly welcome our visitors, whatever their religious belief.
