A visit to Portugal is not complete without a visit to the Fatima shrine which can easily be reached from Lisbon.  A visit was included on the Globus Portugal Escape 8 day program.  Traveling during the shoulder months, like March, allows a close up visit to some amazing and historic religious centers.
