The Sanctuary of Our Lady of Fátima is the city's main attraction and also one of the most visited places in our country every year. Also visit the Wax Museum and the Museum of Sacred Art and Ethnology. Just one kilometer away is the small village of Aljustrel, where the three little shepherds were born.
The region around Fátima is incredibly rich in monuments and countless places that have been protagonists in the history of Portugal. Tomar deserves a visit to its Castle and Convent of Christ. The Monasteries of Alcobaça and Batalha are also compulsory stops. Take the opportunity to visit the imposing Ourém Castle.
If you love the sun and the beach, you are just 40 minutes away from one of the most famous beach destinations: Nazaré. Enjoy the immense sandy beach of Nazaré or, if you are a surfer or body-boarder or just looking for giant waves, Praia do Norte is also worth a visit.
If you enjoy contact with nature, we strongly advise you to explore the existing footpaths in the Aire and Candeeiros Mountains. Also visit the Moeda and Alvados Caves. And don't miss a visit to one of the 7 natural wonders of Portugal: the spectacular Mira d'Aire Caves.
Also here the regional gastronomy has its typical dishes that delight those who visit us. From Sopas do Verde, to Cabbage Soups with Olive Oil, Morcelas de Arroz or Chícharos. Also try the medieval wine of Ourém produced according to methods passed down from the Cistercian Order of Alcobaça Monastery.
