Unfotunately, not every has heard of a cozy and small town in Portugal, called Fatima. Located approximately 140 km North from Lisbon, it is mostly famous for its beautiful Sanctuary, visited by millions of pilgrims and tourists from all around the world.
Portugal is the land of sardines, horse mackerel, tomatoes, pasta, egg yolk, milk and cinnamon. Its cuisine is full of seafood dishes, onions, olives, garlic and grapes. Let’s see what it offers when it comes to dinner.
Everyone has a bucket list, so do I. What you might not know though is that I have another list of sacred sites and religious spots I want to visit before I die. One of them is world’s famous Sanctuary of Fatima.
This summer I was convinced by Inside Lisbon that Portuguese tapas are to die for. I participated in Lisbon’s Food and Wine Walk where I could experience different Portuguese wines, fruits, pastries, bread, meat and obviously cheese and marmalade.
When visiting Fatima with my mom this summer, I stayed at one of the most charming and friendliest hotels in Portugal – Ribeiro Hotel, which I would highly recommend to anyone who is planning on visiting the Sanctuary of Fatima.
