WELCOME TO FRANCE
Upon arrival in France, you will be received by your tour guide. We transfer to our hotel to unpack and settle in before enjoying a leisurely evening in France with your fellow pilgrims.
Today we enjoy a free day in beautiful Paris, France. We will visit the Eiffel Tour and surrounding areas. This is also a good opportunity to visit the surrounding shops for souvenirs.
PARIS - LOURDES
Today we make our way to Lourdes, France, enjoying the beautiful French countryside. We will make a couple of stops along the way to enjoy the scenery and truly experience France.
During your next two days in Lourdes you will have time to pray with your fellow pilgrims from around the world. During your trip, you will have an opportunity to: Attend mass at the Grotto of Our Lady, watch a video presentation on the story of Lourdes, and walk in the footsteps of St.Ber nadette. See Boly Mill where St. Bernadette was born, and the "Cachot," an abandoned prison where Bernadette's impoverished family lived.
LOURDES - SANTIAGO DE COMPOSTELA
Join in prayers with the multitude of pilgrims in attendance for the sick and infirmed. Drink the water from the miraculous spring or submerge yourself in the healing baths. Experience Our Lady's love as you walk into her chapel built on the very rock of the Grotto, in obedience to her request as the "Immaculate Conception." Evenings are free for an optional Blessed Sacrament Procession before dinner. Your role in the universal church will have new meaning as you join the candlelight procession and group rosary.
SANTIAGO DE COMPOSTELA - PORTO
Santiago de Compostela is the capital of northwest Spain’s Galicia region. It’s known as the culmination of the Camino de Santiago pilgrimage route, and the burial site of the apostle St. James. His remains lie within the Catedral de Santiago de Compostela, consecrated in 1211, whose elaborately carved stone facades open onto grand plazas within the medieval walls of the old town. Afterward, we make our way to Porto and enjoy the coast.
We tour the Shrine of Our Lady of Fátima, the graves of Francesco and Jacinta, the Hamlet of Aljustrel where they lived, and Valinhos, where Our Lady appeared to them upon their release from prison. Walk the Via Sacra that ends at the Chapel of Calvary overlooking Fatima. We experience all of the spiritual customs that have arisen out of the apparitions that took place here.
FATIMA - LISBON
Today we explore Lisbon, Portugal. Among our many stops are St. Anthony’s Church celebrating St. Anthony of Padua, St. Jerome’s Monastery, the Discoveries Monument, the Lisbon Cathedral, and the Basilica of the Star.
