As you might expect of a destination for religious pilgrimages, Fátima is early to rise (in many cases, for morning Mass) and early to bed. Cafes in town tend to be locked tight after around 10pm, so religion-weary residents who want to escape drive 4km (3 miles) south of town along Estrada de Minde to the village of Boleiros. Here you'll find Bar Truão (tel. 24/952-15-42; www.truao.com), a music bar that is much more attuned to human frailties than the ecclesiastical monuments in the core. It's open Friday and Saturday nights from 11pm to 2am.
