There you can visit the Chapel of Apparitions (where the Virgin appeared to the children the 13th day of May, June, July, September and October of 1917), the Basilica of Our Lady of the Rosary of Fátima (where are the tombs of the three little shepherds ) and the Basilica of the Most Holy Trinity. After that we´ll travel to the historic center of Tomar, city of the Knights Templar, where we´ll visit the oldest Synagogue of the Iberian Peninsula and the Renaissance Church of St. John the Baptist. After lunch we visited the Convent of Christ and the Templar Castle of Tomar (12th century), classified World Heritage Site by UNESCO. Then we go to Vila Nova da Barquinha, where we'll catch a boat to the Templar Castle of Almourol (12th century). It´s built on an island in the River Tagus, by order of D. Gualdim Paes, Master of the Temple Order.
