The religious centre of Portugal is worthy of a visit for its grand hilltop basilicas, vertiginous mountain scenery and soul-soothing selection of places to stay.

Once a simple farming village on the slopes of the Serra de Aire mountains in Portugal, the inland town of Fátima became one of the most important pilgrimage spots of Christendom back in 1917, when the apparition of the Virgin Mary apparently appeared to three shepherd children. Whether or not you believe the yarn, Fátima is worthy of a visit today, not least for the two grand basilicas now built where the vision took place. Planning on spending the night? We’ve picked some of the best hotels in Fatima for you to enjoy – now bookable with Culture Trip.

1. Coração de Fátima

Meaning the “Heart of Fátima”, this boutique hotel certainly puts you in the very centre of things, with the strikingly modern, low-lying Basílica da Santíssima Trindade (Basilica of the Most Holy Trinity) just a minute away on foot. Updated, architect-led interiors at the hotel are an elegant combination of plush fabrics and patterned detailing, dialled down for a calming effect in the guest rooms. Some of which open onto balconies within eyeshot of the basilica.

2. Aurea Fátima Hotel Congress & Spa

With its liberal use of shimmering gold against black and white, the upscale Aurea Fátima Hotel aims to dazzle. The refined sparkle extends to the guest rooms, too, which include snuggly robes and head-pleasing pillow menus. Take some time out at the spa, with its sauna, Turkish bath and Jacuzzi, before heading to the restaurant for sampling traditional Portuguese flavours with a twist. Set on the main tree-lined avenue in town, the hotel is also just a 5-minute walk from the centre and can organise horse riding trips out in the Serras de Aire mountains, too.

3. SDivine Fátima Hotel

Built in the fifties as a seminary, this grand hotel in Fatima is now dedicated to the more earthly business of being a hotel. Rooms are smart and serene, with all the modern amenities for a comfortable stay. Master suites add the indulgence of deep soaking tubs and fluffy robes. Great for families, there’s a free kids’ club and outdoor playground, and there are tranquil leafy gardens that make the perfect place for quiet contemplation.

4. Lux Fátima Park

If you’re planning a longer stay in Fátima, or just like a bit more room, the Lux Fátima Park is all spacious suites and apartments. Polished wooden floors and plush fabrics give the rooms a smart yet home-style feel, with living and dining areas, too. Apartments also add kitchenettes, and some open onto furnished balconies. There’s a pool terrace with a bar to kick back in the sunshine, or, if you prefer indoor soaking, the spa offers just that.

5. Consolata Hotel
