Religion in Center of Portugal
Center of Portugal is the stage of one of the most important Catholic sanctuaries in the world: the Sanctuary of Our Lady of Fátima. But this is also a meeting point for believers in general, regardless of their own faith or religious creed. A place of confinement, sheer silence and inner peace.
There are also Jewish themed tours across the land, beautiful synagogues, a Jewish Museum in Belmonte and many places of memory and tribute to the Jewish legacy. Follow the Carmelite Route connecting Coimbra to Fátima, an invitation to spiritual enlightenment, or the Portuguese Way to Santiago, either across the coastline or the inland. No matter the faith or religious belief, the spiritual journey is always a deeply personal experience. All the ways lead to a higher purpose.
