Join pilgrims for the Rosary and candlelight processions in Fátima and in Lourdes, another of the world’s most famous pilgrimage places, where you’ll also enjoy a guided walking tour.

Other highlights of this faith-based tour are visits to Monte Sant’Angelo, one of Christendom’s most celebrated shrines, and Jeronimos Monastery, dating to the mid-1400s. In Carcassonne, visit the medieval fortified citadel and marvel at the ramparts, castle walls, and drawbridges. In Burgos, visit the cathedral where El Cid is buried. In Barcelona, visit the Sagrada Familia, Gaudi’s masterpiece. In Braga, one of the world’s oldest Christian cities, visit Bom Jesus do Monte Sanctuary, where devout followers have walked the “Stations of the Cross” since 1811.
