      About this trip

      A place of pilgrimage, piety and miracles - over century since the Blessed Virgin Mary appeared to three young shepherds at the holy sanctuary of Fátima on this 12-day tailored trip through Spain and Portugal. Your pilgrimage will take you to Barcelona, the French medieval walled city of Carcassonne and Grotto in Lourdes. Follow the 9th century Way of St. James through Burgos and Santiago de Compostela - your journey culminating in Lisbon, a city of seven hills fearlessly facing the Atlantic.
