Image: Monserrate Palace in Sintra
Sintra is perpetual. Is our past. Romantic, lustful, and delighting. A Melancholic city that could symbolize the spirit of being Portuguese. Profound and beautiful, that represents our way of being. In Sintra we will go through the gardens of Monserrate, see the virtuoso National Pena Palace and the walk by alleys of a simple village. Let's walk from Palace to Palace and garden to garden. Let's feel the monumentality of our‘fado’.

ÓBIDOS AND PENICHE
If we think about the most important element of Portugal, we think of the Sea. What it brings and where it takes us. Once, it made us proud heroes and discoverers of new worlds. Past 500 years, the gastronomy, the flavours of the sea, on our table during a late lunch with friend, is a constant reminder of our riches adventures across the globe.
In Óbidos we will lose ourselves in the beautiful village with narrow streets and typical houses. Let's drink the traditional‘Ginga de Óbidos’and wait for time to pass. And it passes, but slowly.

Fátima is a place of gathering and hope. It's a place of comfort. Whenever we travel to Fátima, we travel to our interior; we travel to the essence and reason of our being. In Fátima we realize the Magisterium and dimension of the relationship with God.
We’ll cross the Basilica and pray in the chapel of the apparitions. Let's get into the houses where the three shepherds were born and lived their life, and meet some of their relatives. Let's go through a part of the‘via sacra’, meet the old church and the origins of this sacred place. Fátima is a legacy of our past and is primarily a place of union of Portugal to the world.

To have faith, is to take care of the soul, to make it shine and share the feeling
with others... There is nothing more sacred. Share moments, emotions and stories, that’s what we believe in, that’s what we value.
