(2 Reviews)
Fatima Lourdes Rome Pilgrimage

This Fatima Lourdes Rome Pilgrimage combines the most popular Marian Shrines of Fatima and Lourdes with some important Shrines of Spain and a visit to Rome and the Holy See. Beginning in Lisbon, you will have Mass and visit the Church where St. Anthony of Padua, is buried. In Santarem, you will visit St. Stephen’s Church where the Eucharistic Miracle has been on display since it occurred in 1269. In Fatima, where the Virgin Mary appeared to three children in 1917, you will celebrate Mass and pray the rosary at the Little Chapel of the Apparitions. It is here in Fatima that Our Lady implored Jacinta, Francisco, and Lucia to pray for world peace, and promised that her Immaculate Heart will triumph. Visit the childhood homes and the tombs of the Fatima visionaries, and join pilgrims from all nations in the nightly processions. As you travel through Spain on this Fatima Lourdes Rome Pilgrimage, you will visit important places in the lives of St. Ignatius and St. Teresa, including Loyola, Avila, and Alba de Tormes. In the great healing center of Lourdes, you will have ample time to pray at the grotto where Our Lady appeared to St. Bernadette and to immerse yourself in the Miraculous Water. You’ll visit the many important sights related to St. Bernadette and her family including the Boly Mill and the Cachot, and you’ll join pilgrims from around the world in prayer for physical and spiritual healing during the nightly Candlelight Processions. In Rome, you will visit the magnificent St. Peter’s Basilica, built over the remains of St. Peter. You will see the Vatican or Holy See.  During the Fatima Lourdes Rome Pilgrimage Tour, you will also visit the Vatican Museum, the repository of awe-inspiring works of art by some of the world’s most renowned artists. Gazing upon Michelangelo’s extraordinary ceiling and contemplating his masterpiece, The Last Judgement, in the Sistine Chapel is truly the highlight. While in Rome you will also visit the Basilica of St. John Lateran, the Cathedral of Rome, the Basilica of St. Mary Major, the largest church in the world dedicated to the Virgin Mary, and the Basilica of St. Paul Outside the Walls, built above the tomb of St. Paul. If the Pope is in residence, you will join him for an audience in St. Peter’s Square.  Why don’t you go ahead and book the Fatima Lourdes Rome Pilgrimage now for 2024 or 2025?

Dear Catholic Journeys
We enjoyed our pilgrimage to Fatima Lourdes, and the Vatican in October.
Great tour guide and the accommodations were great. One highlight that was more significant than expected was seeing St. Stephen’s church and the Eucharistic Miracle.
