We leave Lisbon and head (North) to Fátima (STOP) and visit Fátima.

Basilica of Fátima, On May 13, 1917, three children grazed a small flock in Cova da Iria, parish of Fátima, they were called Lúcia de Jesus, aged 10, and Francisco and Jacinta Marto, her cousins, aged 9 and 7 years suddenly saw a bright light; thinking it was lightning, they decided to leave, but below, another flash lit up the space, and they saw on top of a small holm oak tree, a Lady Brighter than the Sun, from whose hands hung a white rosary.
The Basilica was started in 1928 and Sacred on October 7, 1953, its 15 Altars are dedicated to the 15 Mysteries of the Rosary, the stained-glass windows represent scenes of the apparitions and invocations of the Litany of Our Lady.
The Tombs of Francisco and Jacinta Marto Beatified on the Last Visit of His Holiness Pope John Paul II to Portugal are found in the Basilica.

A history was written with Celtic Sounds until the century. II BC, century marked by the arrival of the Romans and of which signs of a great culture that we can admire until our days remain.
As urbes protected themselves around the temples, and Coimbra, at the will of D. Afonso Henriques, 1st King of Portugal, who gave birth in 1131 to the Monastery of Santa Cruz, Coimbra Fez-Cidade – Berço de Reis.
Mas Coimbra owes to the monks of S. Bento and Cister the monasteries and convents of great sobriety, where light illuminated bare walls and arches that raised the buildings to God.
But it is the Renaissance and the University that have distinguished Coimbra for centuries.

Free time for lunch

Coimbra Cathedral built in 1160, it is a fortress-like temple with battlements on top of the outer walls, its style being integrated in the Romanesque style of Coimbrão.

Joanina Library – Chapel of S. Miguel – Sala dos Capelos

Joanina Library is the work of Portuguese artists, the building began to be built, by order of King D. João V, in the first half of the 18th century, between 1716 and 1724, on the outside there is a noble portal, in baroque style, topped for a great national shield from that monarch’s time.

Capela de S. Miguel is located to the left of the Tower, replacing a small medieval oratory that is private to the palace. XVII and XVIII.

Sala dos Archeiros gives access to an extensive corridor, has balconies that lead to the Sala Grande dos Atos, better known as “Sala dos Capelos”, and it is here that even today the most important acts of academic life take place, such as the investiture of the Magnificent Rectors, opening ceremony of the academic year and doctorates.

Tower “the Goat” is today, as it has been for a long time, the emblem of the University and even of the City of Coimbra, built in 1728.
