Spiritual Highlights of Iberia, Lourdes & Italy—Faith Based Travel

Reaffirm and celebrate your faith on this Portugal, Spain, France, and Italy tour with overnights in Lisbon, Fátima, Santiago de Compostela, Burgos, Lourdes, Barcelona, Rome, San Giovanni Rotondo, and the Assisi area. Along the way, visit some of the world’s most famous shrines, pilgrimage sites, and spiritual places.

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 world-famous Colosseum.

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