Fatima is north east of Lisbon and is where the Virgin Mary appeared to shepherds a number of times in 1917 and proclaimed 3 prophecies - the end of WW1, the event of WW11 and an unknown prophecy that is supposed to be locked away in the Vatican's secret library. Fatima therefore, became a place of pilgrammage for Catholics and today it's a boomimg tourism site as well as a holy shrine and church.
Had a great lunch at an old monastery in Belmonte that has been converted into a hotel and restaurant. It sits high on a hill with sweeping views of the valley below.
We then crossed over into Spain again for our destination of Salamanca.
