Fatima: Our Lady of Fatima is one of the titles given by Catholics to Virgin Mary. This title was dedicated to her after she reportedly appeared to three little shepherds – Lúcia, Francisco và Jacinta – in Cova da Ira, 2km away from Fatima. Our Lady appeared to them six times in 1917 and revealed three secrets.

Sanctuary of the Eucharistic Miracle of Santarém: The Sanctuary of the Eucharistic Miracle of Santarém in Portugal is a revered pilgrimage site, known for its profound historical and spiritual significance. This church houses a miraculous relic from the 13th century, when a consecrated Host reportedly turned into flesh and blood. 


Barcelona: The Square of Catalunya & La Rambla are unique of Barcelona. The former is the link of Barcelona, where all roads start. La Rambla is a tree-lined pedestrian boulevard. It stretches for 1.3 km (0.8 mi) connecting the Square of Catalunya with the Christopher Columbus Monument. The Old Town with the Gothic Cathedral of Barcelona (La Seu) was built in the Middle Age. Barcelona has the largest medieval town in Europe. Another visitor highlight is Plaça del Rei (meaning “King’s Square”). Sagrada Familia Cathedral is iconic and unique of Barcelona.

Visitor highlights of this city include the Royal Palace of Madrid (Palacio de Real), the Prado Museum, Plaza Mayor, Puerta del Sol (the Door of Sun), and Cibeles Square, depicting the goddess in a chariot pulled by two lions.

Seville: Is the center of art, culture, and finance of Southern Spain.

Day 04: Lisbon - Obidos - The Sanctuary of the Eucharistic Miracle of Santarém - Porto

Travel north through the countryside to the ancient­walled town called Obidos. Obidos is a medieval city surrounded by the wall of the castle with picturesque narrow streets, whitewashed houses, iron balconies, and flower pots by every window. Ranked 4th in the top 10 romantic cities in Europe, Obidos also has another name – “The wedding present town” – because on their wedding day in 1282, King Dinis gifted the entire town to his new Queen Isabel. This romantic tale makes Obidos a romantic wedding and honeymoon destination for newlyweds.

En route to the Sanctuary of Fatima, a center of Christian faith and a sacred pilgrimage site that hosts more than two million visitors annually. See the chapel where our Lady appeared to three little shepherd children and revealed three secrets.

Visit the Basilica of the Holy Trinity, a minor basilica in the Sanctuary of Fatima. The simple modernist design is both functional and iconographic to express its religiosity. From the main portico, the Door of Christ brings attention to the transcendence of God. It represents the themes of Father, Son and Holy Spirit with iconic imagery. Come to Cova da Iria to visit the tombs of Francisco and Jacinta, the children who saw the apparitions of Virgin Mary. Visit other sites related to the miraculous appearances of the Virgin Mary to the children in 1917 as well.

In the evening, join us for a candlelight procession in the Prayer Area of the Sanctuary of Fatima. Approach the area and find yourself in total silence as you witness people crawl on their knees towards the heart of the shrine to light a candle, say a prayer, and make a vow to Our Lady of Fatima as signs of their faith and devotions. (B/D)

Day 06: Fatima – Seville

Transfer to Seville, stop for some scenic views of many castles, the Alentejo region of Portugal with its many cork forests.

Day 08: Seville – Gibraltar (England) – Costa del Sol

This morning, we’ll venture to La Linea to cross the Rock of Gibraltar, a limestone promontory ceded to the British in 1713 and a point of contention.

Our next stop is St Michael’s Cave, a seemingly bottomless cave which has attracted visitors ever since the days of the Romans.

Visiting Gibraltar, you will definitely stumble across Barbary Macaques, Gibraltar’s most popular tourist attraction. The Barbary Macaque in Gibraltar is the only wild monkey population in the European continent. While you’re observing them, try do do so as naturally as possible. Refrain from feeding and shouting at them.

The lighthouse “Europa Point”, standing at the very tip of Gibraltar, is our next stop. In a clear day when the sea water is still, stand on Europa Point and appreciate the incredible views. From here you can even see the Straits of Gibraltar, where the Mediterranean Sea and the Atlantic Ocean collide.

After lunch, we’ll transfer to the fabulous Costa del Sol (literally “sun coast”). It features the coastal towns and communities that reside along the Mediterranean coastline of Malaga Province, in the autonomous community of Andalusia. As the birthplace of artist Pablo Picasso, Malaga is considered the art hub of the region, one that can be compared to Madrid. Its dynamism and fine dining can be compared to Barcelona.

After dinner, with our guide, take a leisure walk in downtown Malaga, perhaps stop at some sidewalk cafes and enjoy a restful night in Malaga. (B/D)

Day 10: Toledo – Madrid

Venture to Toledo, the capital of Castile with a history of 2000 years. You will visit St. Thomas Church where you will admire El Greco’s masterpiece, The Burial of the Count of Orgaz. The interior of the church is in lavish baroque and the exterior is influenced by the Gothic style. Toledo is famed for its sword-making industry. For over 2000 years, the city has been a traditional sword-making, steel-working center.

Your journey continues to Madrid, the capital and largest city of Spain.

Day 11: Madrid

Although founded in 852 AD, it was not until 1561 that Madrid was declared the capital city of Spain, earning the title from Toledo. The Royal Palace of Madrid (Palacio de Real) was chosen as the official residence of the Spanish Royal Family.

Your guided tour in Madrid will stop by the Prado Museum, the 5th largest museum in the world, keeping a world-class European art collection, ranging from the masterpieces of Velazquez, Goya to El Greco.

Make sure you sample Jamón, Spain’s signature ham. You can only take in its freshness and fine texture while dining at a restaurant and pairing it with a glass of wine. It is little wonder why Jamón is the crown jewel of Spanish cuisine.

In case you extend your stay in Madrid, check out the Thyssen Museum, Reina Sofia, Palacio de las Telecomunicaciones… or perhaps just some small sidewalk cafes and restaurants to take in the tastiness of Spanish cuisine.

Dùng bữa tại nhà hàng Casa Botín, đã đi vào sách kỷ lục Guinness là nhà hàng lâu đời nhất thế giới có từ năm 1725, nổi tiếng với món heo sữa quay. (B/D)

Day 12: Madrid – Barcelona - Montserrat

Transfer to train station. Take AVE high-speed train from Madrid to Barcelona.

Transfer to Montserrat Benedictine monastery, one of the 10 most unique monasteries in the world. The place is notable for its unique architecture and enshrining the statue of the Black Virgin of Montserrat. According to Catholic historians, the statue was carved around 50 AD and brought to Spain. It was later hidden from the Moors in a cave, then rediscovered in 880 AD by shepherds. Legend has it that they followed a bright light and heard heavenly music then eventually found the statue. The Bishop of Manresa, present at the discovery, suggested that the statue of the Black Virgin of Montserrat be moved to Manresa. However, when they were trying to move the small statue, it was too heavy to be lifted. Thus people had to build a monastery around the statue. It seemed that the Virgin had indicated her will to stay on Montserrat to be venerated there. (B/D)

Day 13: Barcelona

Welcome to the capital of the Catalonia region – Barcelona. This city offers a unique mix of medieval charm and avant­garde grandeur.
Proceed to visit La Sagrada Familia Cathedral, the largest unfinished Roman Catholic church in the world, designed by Catalan architect Antoni Gaudi. The construction of the church began in 1883, and Gaudi worked on it until his death in 1926. Sagrada Familia is expected to be completed in 2026 with funding from donations and ticket sales. Currently, 8 out of 12 about 100 meters tall bell towers are completed. The higher towers of the facade of the glory and the central dome with a height of over 170 meters will be built. The style of this marvelous church is a mixture of Spanish Late Gothic, Catalan Modernism and Art Nouvea. While visiting the church, give yourself a lot of time to examine the details of the facades, where many embassies and biblical stories are hidden.

Visit the Cathedral of Barcelona, also known as the Cathedral of the Holy Cross and Saint Eulalia, is a stunning architectural masterpiece that dates back to the 13th century. (B/D)

Nga & Hùng thân mến,

Nhờ tài tổ chức chu đáo & lựa chọn nơi chốn của Nga và sự hướng dẫn chuyên nghiệp nhưng thân tình của Hùng mà anh chị kỳ này đã có một chuyến đi thăm Spain & Portugal thật là tuyệt vời.
Đây là chuyến đi mà anh chị thích nhất từ trước đến nay vì đã nhờ những local tour guide mà AV tuyển chọn.
Rất thích thú về lịch sử văn hóa và nghệ thuật kiến trúc của hai nước ở Cực Nam Châu Âu này. Mỗi ngày là một khám phá mới và đầy thích thú.
Những khách sạn ở ngay Fatima hay trong các thành phố cổ của Spain vừa tiện nghi vừa thuận tiện để du khách thoải mái đi dự lễ rước buổi tối hay đi thăm những di tích cổ và mua sắm đến tận khuya mà không lo ngại gì cả.
Ba ngày ở Barcelona thật là xứng đáng. Cám ơn Nga đã nghĩ ra lộ trình mới này. Đây là chuyến đi mà những người thích tìm hiểu văn hóa lịch sử không thể bỏ qua.

Thanks again very much.
