Fátima is a civil parish in the municipality of Ourém, in the Portuguese Santarém District. Let the collections at Museu Monografico de Conimbriga and Museu Nacional Ferroviario capture your imagination. Discover out-of-the-way places like Convent of Christ and Shrine of our Lady of the Rosary of Fatima. Change things up with these side-trips from Fatima: Capelas Imperfeitas (in Batalha), Monastery of Alcobaca (in Alcobaca) and Coimbra (Old Cathedral of Coimbra (Se Velha de Coimbra) & Biblioteca Joanina - Universidade de Coimbra).
