Fátima - Casa dos Pastorinhos
Half Day (4 hours) From 190€
Fatima is one of the most esteemed religious centers in the world, where the three shepherds allegedly witnessed the apparition of Our Lady on May 13, 1917.
Legend has it that "a lady brighter than the sun" appeared before the three children, alerting them to the importance of praying and telling them that they would appear again on that same date and time for five consecutive months. He also promised to reveal his identity and perform a miracle on the day of his last appearance.
In the following months, Our Lady revealed three prophecies to the children. On October 13, at the appointed time, about 70,000 people gathered to watch the last apparition. As the people prayed, Our Lady appeared and performed what became known as "Miracle of the Sun": the sun began to spin like a fireball and the intense rain that had fallen until then ceased and the clothes of the people remained miraculously dry.
The most suitable time to visit Fatima is during the days of pilgrimages, on 13 May and October, when pilgrims fill the streets, eager to fulfill the promises made to Our Lady or to live the unique spiritual environment felt on these occasions .
Visit the imposing neoclassical basilica that stands in the heart of the Sanctuary of Fatima and the tombs of the three little shepherds inside. The small Chapel of the Apparitions is also worth a visit, since it marks the site of the apparitions of Our Lady of Fatima. Do not miss the large section of the Berlin Wall next to the chapel (symbol of the end of Communism, revealed as one of Fatima's secrets) and visit the homes of the three shepherds in the village of Aljustrel. Take the Via Sacra - one of the most popular routes in Fatima, which leads pilgrims through the 14 chapels that represent the different seasons of the Passion of Christ.
In Fatima you will have to visit the small town of Fatima for anyone from noon or the duration of a full day, so that you can take in completely the importance of this important place of Catholic pilgrimage.
