The name of Fátima has Moorish origin, corresponding to the name of one of the daughters of Muhammad, according to the legend of Fatima was a Moura princess, who was kidnapped during the Christian reconquest under the command of D. Afonso Henriques.

- MOSTEIRO DA BATALHA (BATTLE MONASTERY)
The Monastery of Santa Maria da Vitoria, also called Monastery of Batalha is arguably one of the most beautiful pieces of the Portuguese and European architecture.
This exceptional architectural ensemble resulted from the fulfillment of a promise made by King João I in gratitude for the victory in Aljubarrota, a battle fought on August 14, 1385, which secured the throne and guaranteed the independence of Portugal.
Nowadays, the Monastery of Batalha is considered a UNESCO World Heritage place.
It was just a wave. But not some wave. A gigantic wave that surfaced in North Beach surfed by the world surf legend Garrett Mcnamara in 2011. This overwhelming wave, over 30 meters high, has forever changed the destination of this picturesque coastal city known as Nazaré. Or as surfers say: Naza!
But Nazaré is not just a breathtaking wave. In fact, Nazaré is a charming fishing town and a holiday resort full of color, where one feels the enormous importance of tradition. Nazaré grew in a very sustainable way over the years, doing justice to the common heritage and historical memory.
The medieval village of Óbidos is one of the most picturesque and well preserved in Portugal.
Within walls, we find a well-preserved castle and a labyrinth of streets and white houses that enchant those who walk there. Among Manueline porticoes, flowered windows and small openings, there are several reasons to visit, good examples of the religious and civil architecture of the village's golden age.
