The Way of Fatima/Carmelite Way
As you walk this 111 km pilgrimage, see the beauty of Portugal and experience three UNESCO cities along the Way!
“Porto gives you as much cobbled-street charm and dazzling ancient architecture as you’ll get anywhere else in Europe, and it’s nestled in one of the world’s leading wine regions — yet it’s still affordable and uncrowded. And right now, it’s more accessible, exciting, and alive than ever before.” ~ https://www.thrillist.com/travel/nation/things-to-do-in-porto-portugal
“It was the capital of Portugal for more than a century – so why is Coimbra so under the radar? A two-hour train from Lisbon, this city is a laid-back alternative to the big-hitters, where you can delve into the country’s abundant history with plenty of breathing space. You get to potter around in peace, soaking in the faded romance of its peeling mansion facades. Here, elegantly tiled cafes and bakeries host coffee-sipping locals, bemused by the odd visitor snapping photos. ~ https://theculturetrip.com/europe/portugal/articles/the-best-things-to-do-in-coimbra-portugal/
“Whether you’re a devout Catholic or just a curious onlooker, a visit to Fátima provides a chance to marvel at the power of faith: Two huge churches and millions of pilgrims — all of it started by three young children and “a lady brighter than the sun.” ~ https://www.ricksteves.com/watch-read-listen/read/articles/witnessing-the-power-of-faith-in-fatima
