In the center
of the country
Fatima is located in central Portugal, in the Ribatejo region. It is only one hour away from Lisbon and Coimbra and about two hours away from Oporto. The A1 motorway ends on the Peregrinos (north) and Pastorinhos (south) roundabouts, which makes it easier to access the centre of the city of Peace.

Exit at the Fatima Bus Station.
Fatima’s Bus Terminal is only 1300 feet (400 m) away from the Sanctuary.
There is no train station near the Sanctuary of Fatima, hence making this route even more expensive and time-consuming. However, there are a few options for those who wish to take this type of transportation.
The Caminhos de Fatima Project – marked with blue arrows – is intended to make the pilgrim route a safer one. The whole way is marked with blue arrows and it passes through rural roads with little traffic or dirt tracks, hence avoiding the roads with a lot of traffic.
There are four routes, which coincide with Caminhos de Santiago (which are marked with yellow arrows): The Northern Way, the Tagus Way, the Nazare Way, and the Coastal Way.
