One day trip to the famous Catholic Sanctuary.
The Sanctuary of Fátima, a journey to the altar of the world. This town is a symbol of the Virgin Mary and one of the world’s most important religious sites. It was between May and October 1917, when three shepherd children – Jacinta, Francisco and Lúcia – witnessed the apparitions of Our lady of the Rosary, (the Virgin Mary), at the site of the sanctuary.
As well as the famous Sanctuary, you can also visit Fátima Parish Church, the small Chapel of the Holy Way and the Calvary. At Loca do Anjo in Valinhos, you can visit the shepherd children’s houses and their local water well. Trips to the Museum of Sacred Art and Ethnology, the Wax Museum, and the Casa-Museu de Aljustrel, as well as the Museum Fátima 1917 Aparições, and the Animated Crib and Village of Bethlehem – will all shed light on the history of Fátima too, and leave a lasting impression of this mystical place.
