While we were on holiday in the algarve our son decided to go to fatima for the day by car with his family as they are very religious and wanted to visit this very holey place. We were astonished to get a bill on our credit card for €69 for the journey. This seems very expensive for one day. We have tolls in Ireland but they wouldn't be more than a few euros. We are big supporters of portugal and like to help your economy but this would make me rethink for again. Kind regards. Laura Sewell 3cnd2
