9/24 - We left Fatima towards the Castle of Almourol, which is a medieval castle,

located on a small islet in the middle of the Tejo River. After lunch at the castle,

we cycled to Martinchel, a small village with a picturesque church and a great hotel.


We passed through a lot of small villages today. One was under massive restoration.


Below - lunch was at Almourol Castle

It is believed that the castle was constructed on the site of a primitive Lusitanian castle 

that was later conquered by the Romans during the 1st century .


Below - Wendy purchased wax body parts at Fatima which she showed us.

Christian pilgrims who attend the shrine at Fatima in Portugal buy wax

body parts as part of a ritual of prayer for well-being and good health.
