Fátima / Coimbra

Fatima belongs to the District of Santarem, in the central part (after the now defunct/former Vale do Tejo) and the Médio Tejo subregion. His worldwide fame is due to the fact that, on 13 May 1917, the Virgin Mary appeared to the shepherds, in the form of our Lady of Fatima.

City of narrow streets, patios, steps and medieval arches, Coimbra was cradle of birth of six Kings of Portugal, of the first dynasty, as well as the first University in the country and one of the oldest in Europe.
