Starting in the Portuguese capital and bound for the Sanctuary of Fatima, our pilgrimage will always have the necessary logistical support along the way, where you will feel safe and without having to worry about overnight stays or luggage, you will only have of walking and we take care of everything else! There will be 7 days of walking in the Fatima pathways and 8 nights in a hotel, with breakfast included and always accompanied by a support vehicle along the 140 km of the path.
The Fatima pathways are available all year round to small groups of 4 to 8 people by appointment!
The meeting point and the beginning of our journey will be near the Vasco da Gama Tower in Parque das Nações. From here we start the walk along the Tagus River towards the north. The Way quickly arrives at Sacavém where after crossing the bridge we will walk along the Trancão River where you can enjoy a beautiful landscape and then go through the villages of Granja and Alpriate where you can discover a more rural Portugal. In Póvoa de Santa Iria and again next to the Tagus river the stage ends at a small fishermen’s bar!
Overnight in Vila Franca de Xira
Póvoa de Santa Iria – Ditch of the Loaded – 21Km
The beginning of this second stage will be marked by the beautiful wooden walkways, always in the background of the Tagus River. Then, cross Alverca and Alhandra, always with the greatest attention to road traffic. The path continues towards Vila Franca de Xira by the ecopista, always close to the river and safely. Located on the banks of the Tagus river, Vila Franca de Xira is surrounded by fertile plains, the lezírias. After passing the garden next to the train station, we quickly reached Vala do Carregado where we ended this second day.
The beginning of this stage will be next to the thermoelectric plant, and also marked by a landscape, which at the right times of the year, we can see the huge flocks of storks, herons and other birds that feed on the rice stubble. Passing through Vila Nova da Rainha and from here the path goes to Azambuja, with a very old foundation and dating back to Roman times. From here we discover the Lezíria do Tejo, a flat and fertile territory, occupied by the large farms of agricultural production in properties as far as the eye can see. In the middle, leaning against the Tagus River and protected by a dike of earth and stone. We finish the stage in the small village of Reguengo.
Overnight in Santarém
Reguengo – Santarém – 22Km
At the beginning of this fourth stage we can walk on the dike that protects the houses from the river water, it also gives a unique view of the Tagus River and Lezíria. A route where we can talk to the local populations of Valada, Reguengo or Porto de Muge who slowly appreciate the passage of time. In the fields there are hydrometers of the 19th century that mark the floods that change the life of these places and guarantee the fertility of the lands. This route has a large stretch of agricultural land without any type of construction between Porto de Muge and Santarém, in a walk that invites deep reflection.
Overnight in Santarém
Santarém – Arneiro das Milhariças – 22Km
The landscape on the way, when leaving Santarém, will be of rural fields and the discovery of mountain landscapes. The villages surprise us with a Portugal almost preserved since the end of the 19th century, where agriculture dominated the region, with its vineyards, orchards, olive groves, vegetable gardens and sowing fields. Traces of these times remain in the recovered rural heritage and in the countless pieces of religious and civil heritage that still remain present in the places of origin and in the imagination of the populations. In a constant rise and fall, we arrive at Arneiro das Milhariças where we finish the fifth stage of our pilgrimage.
Overnight in Alcanena
Arneiro das Milhariças – Minde- 17Km
After leaving Arneiro das Milhariças we face a steep slope until we reach the top of a mountain where we can appreciate the old mills that are still in good condition there. After passing through Monsanto and done a few kilometers on asphalt, we make our first approach to the old stone trails made by shepherds, in order to reach the beautiful viewpoint over the village of Minde. In Minde we finished this stage.
Overnight in Alcanena
Minde – Sanctuary of Fátima – 16Km
When we left Minde for the World Altar, we faced a long climb, with a few kilometers but with little inclination. With passage over the village of Vale Alto, we quickly entered the parish of Fátima through the village of Giesteira, where from here we will make a descent until we practically reach our desired destination, the Sanctuary of Fátima.
