Pilgrimage to the site goes on all year round but the main pilgrimage festivals take place from May to October, on the 13th day of each month, on the anniversaries of the original appearances.

Continuation to Coimbra, also known as the city of the students, began to evolve into a major cultural centre with the foundation of the University of Coimbra in 1290.
The university, one of the oldest in Europe and the oldest academic institution in the Portuguese-speaking world, attracts visitors from around the world due to its monumental buildings and history. In Coimbra we visit the university, the library and church of Santa Clara and then head north to the city of Porto.

In a colorful urban landscape, with many centuries of history, we will tread through peculiar places, get to know the most picturesque corners and witness the magnificence of the great architectural symbols of the “Invicta” city, like the Cathedral, the neo-Classical Stock Exchange Palace, the Cathedral Neighbourhood and the Church of St. Francisco, all top exponents of Baroque art.

In the afternoon, we will enjoy a cruise on the Douro River, of 50 minutes duration, giving us a totally different perspective of the city’s beauty as we slowly travel up the river and under the six bridges that cross it.

In 1985 the city’s historic centre was designated a World Heritage Site by UNESCO.

The city’s Cathedral, with its baroque façade, is the destination of today. It has been throughout history, the important 9th century medieval pilgrimage route, the Way of St. James.
Legend has it that the remains of the apostle James were brought to Galicia in the early 9th century in a boat made of stone, and were later discovered at Santiago de Compostela.

Breakfast at the hotel.
From Porto we travel South, heading for Lisbon, and on the way we visit the cities of Alcobaça, Batalha and Óbidos.
The city of Alcobaça became notable with the first King of Portugal, D. Alfonso Henriques, who decided to build there a church, the biggest in Portugal at that time, to celebrate the conquest of Santarém from the Moors, in 1147.
The church, later evolved into the Monastery of Alcobaça. The finished church and monastery were the first truly Gothic buildings in Portugal and are also one of the first foundations of the Cistercian Order in Portugal. Due to its artistic and historical importance, it was listed by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site in 1989.

The tour then brings us to Batalha where we visit the Monastery, one of the best and most original examples of Late Gothic architecture in Portugal, intermingled with the Manueline style.
The monastery was built to thank the Virgin Mary for the Portuguese victory over the Castilians in the Battle of Aljubarrota.

Before driving to Lisbon, a brief tour in the delightful town of Óbidos, located on a hill and still encircled by a fortified wall.
The well-preserved mediaeval look of its streets, squares, walls and its massive Moorish castle, have turned the picturesque village into a preferred tourist attraction in Portugal.
