Catholic Shrines & Places of Interest in Portugal


Portugal is one of the most un-spoiled and picturesque countries in Europe, and has a rich Catholic history. Some of the many sites of interest to Catholics are shown below. Certainly Fatima is the most world-famous but the others are worth a visit as well.

Braga: Our Lady of Sameiro & Bom Jesus do Monte

Coimbra:  Convent of St. Teresa (where Sister Lucia lived) & tomb of Saint Elizabeth of Portugal in Monastery of Santa Clara

Fatima: Apparitions of Our Lady of Fatima

Lisbon: Birthplace of Saint Anthony of Padua

Madeira (Funchal): Popular cruise port

Porto:  Sanctuary of Alexandrina de Balasar, Beautiful churches and port wine!

Santarem: Eucharistic Miracle of Santarem

Traveling independently? We recommend that you try staying in a Pousada.

And recently, at least one cruise line has begun to offer river cruises in Portugal.
