Religious Tourism

Portugal is a roadmap of temples, devotions and religious festivals that you can follow out of faith or driven by a more universal spirituality.

In Portugal, Fatima is the one of the key locations for religious tourism and sees about five million visitors a year. It is one of the world’s most important Marian pilgrimage sites and in 2017 Fatima held a special attraction for the celebration of the centenary of the apparitions and features the presence of Pope Francis.

In Central Portugal, the Jews have also left their mark. There are also many paths travelled by pilgrims today, retracing the steps taken long ago to Santiago de Compostela. Whether you are following the Cathedral route or out to discover the simple shrines and chapels in honour of the local patron saint, Portugal has much to offer.
