Bus to Fatima from Tomar

by BridgetForristal

Hi
My pal and I are doing the portugesse camino from Lisbon to Oporto in July. last year we did from Oporto to Santaigo which was fanastic and peaceful and quiet
So this year to complete all, we start at Lisbon to Oporto . We will walk to Tomar and need to figure if there is a bus to Fatima first and maybe then a bus to Ansiao rejoining the camino there . Any and all tips welcomed
Thank you

Re: Bus to Fatima from Tomar

Hi Bridget,
I did the Camino in Spain last year and went from Santiago to Oporto right after. Collected info on the Portuguese Camino then, sorry can't find it right now.
But I read somewhere that yes, there are buses fm Tomar to Fatima.

Then I'm sure you can bus Fatima to Pombal, then to Ansiao to rejoin the historic Camino. See this link, could help:

Read a long blog in French about a few options to historic camino. One road from Fatima apparently called Camino Marial (devotion to the Virgin Mary) would go in direction of Batalha on N356 and continue towards Pombal along A1. Blogger said there's a marked trail with arrows but that Portuguese pilgrims all use the highway... ?
Be ready for a lot of coommercialism in Fatima.

I hope that's useful. And that this part of your Camino is as good as last year's. :)

There is one daily direct coach from Tomar to Fatima at 0700 arriving at 0740. This is operated by REDE-EXPRESSOS www.rede-expressos.pt

Buses operated by RODOTEJO run between Tomar and Fatima at 0750, 1252 and 1720 daily www.rodotejo.pt - these are local buses taking about an hour for the journey.

Ansiao is a bit out in the wilds, but I have found that Rodotejo goes there from Tomar at 1730 on weekdays only. Ansiao has restricted bus service from the town of Pombal

but you will still have the exercise of planning the journey from Fatima to Pombal! Rodotejo can take you from Fatima to Leiria and Transdev from Leiria to Pombal.

I hope that helps.

Travel Tips for Fátima

Fatima pilgrims

by TinKan

In the very heart of the Sanctuary is the first edifice constructed in the Cova da Iria, at the place of Our Lady's Apparitions. A marble pillar on which the Statue of Our Lady is placed marks the exact spot where the apparition appeared. Here converge the four million pilgrims who visit the Sanctuary each year.

the chapel of the apparitions

by call_me_rhia

It's the heart of the sanctury of Fatima, and yet
it's not its conspicuous monument: this chapel is where the Virgin Mary is supposed to have made her first apparition. The exact spot is marked by a the marble pillar on which the statue of Mary is placed. The construction is very simple - nearly bare - and from the distance it can easily be mistaken for a bus stop or a rest area. It's a place of prayer, not of photgraphs.

"Sanctuary of Our Lady of Fátima"

Fátima is a famous sacred shrine dedicated to the Virgin Mary that welcomes millions of pilgrims and tourist. It is this very place where the apparitions were seen by three precious children, Lúcia, Francisco and Jacinta. Within this square are many structures dedicated to the faithful.

This lovely post card is from another wonderful lovely friend. Thank Nat for sharing your beautiful country!~ncfg~

Fatima

by Luisanna

"Holy City"

Fatima is situated just 1-1 1/2 hours drive north of Lisbon and 2 hours drive south of Porto on the main on A1 highway which now runs the length of Portugal. It lies about 2,200 ft above sea level in the mountain range of the Sierra de Aire, close to local sites of interest such as underground caves, a national park, a castle and an ancient monastery which has been designated into a national monument. The surrounding towns of Nazare, Batalha and Alcobaca are also places of architectural interest and the famous university town of Coimbra is just 40 minutes drive up the highway.

In addition to this, Fatima itself has great importance being on of the major Catholic shrines in the world and is now visited by 10 million people annually. It has just acquired the status of a city and there are plans for further development. The central point of course is the sanctuary with the Basilica and the Capelinha
