Overview

Operated by ?

Much like Barcelona’s Sagrada Familia Basilica– the architectural masterpiece still under construction more than a century after the laying of the cornerstone – one’s journey of faith is unique, inspirational, and ongoing. This religious tour to Portugal, Spain, and France invites you to enlighten your personal journey as you visit some of Europe’s most treasured shrines, pilgrimage sites, and spiritual places. From Lisbon to Barcelona, you’ll enjoy both city and sacred sightseeing as you visit history’s most revered cathedrals, basilicas, monasteries, and sanctuaries – with ample free time for appreciation and reflection. Visit Fatima and stand in the same spot where the Virgin Mary appeared to three shepherd children. In Lourdes see the grotto where the Virgin Mary appeared before St. Bernadette, and have the opportunity to immerse yourself in the Healing Baths. Overflowing with spirituality, you’re also invited to participate in mass, rosary prayer, and a candlelight procession along the way.
