Religion and Pilgrim

Portugal's strong Catholic heritage, allied to the many local pagan customs, has lead to a popular culture rich in a firm belief for many Portuguese in saints, miracles, healing springs, shrines and offerings.

Follow in the footsteps of thousands of pilgrims during the pilgrimage season May-October to pay their respects to the Virgin on the shrine at Fátima, the holiest site of the country. You may prefer a spiritual and educational retreat to Baroque churches in Portugal's religious capital, Braga, or appreciating the strength of faith of the Knights Templar in Tomar, or being part of the unparallel traditional family celebrations of Christmas and Easter’s Holy Week.

Absolutely Portugal will ensure that your stay in Portugal is enjoyable and exciting.
