Summary

Reaffirm and celebrate your faith on this Portugal, Spain, France, and Italy. Along the way, visit some of the world's most famous shrines, pilgrimage sites, and spiritual places.

Santiago de Compostela has been known as a pilgrimage site since the 9th century. Spend two nights here and visit St. James’ Cathedral, where you’ll have the opportunity to attend Mass. You’ll also attend Mass in Fátima, home to one of the most famous Catholic shrines; in Rome at St. Mary Major Basilica, the most important Roman church dedicated to the Virgin Mary; in San Giovanni Rotondo’s Old Church; in Assisi’s St. Francis Basilica; in St. Francis’ church in Lanciano; and you’ll visit the 17th-century Sanctuary of Loyola, built to honor the founder of the Jesuits. Join pilgrims for the Rosary and candlelight processions in Fátima and in Lourdes, another of the world’s most famous pilgrimage places, where you’ll also enjoy a guided walking tour.

Other highlights of this faith-based tour are visits to Monte Sant’Angelo, one of Christendom’s most celebrated shrines, and Jeronimos Monastery, dating to the mid-1400s. In Carcassonne, visit the medieval fortified citadel and marvel at the ramparts, castle walls, and drawbridges. In Burgos, visit the cathedral where El Cid is buried. In Barcelona, visit the Sagrada Familia, Gaudi’s masterpiece. In Braga, one of the world’s oldest Christian cities, visit Bom Jesus do Monte Sanctuary, where devout followers have walked the “Stations of the Cross” since 1811. In Rome, attend the Papal audience (subject to availability) and visit the Papal summer residence and gardens in Castel Gandolfo.

All of this and much more are included on this inspirational Portugal, Spain, France, and Italy tour designed for value-minded travelers.
