The place where on May 13, 1917, our Lady appeared to three children of humble families who left the animals to graze, and told them that she would return every month at the same time for the following six months, and asked them to pray the Rosary every day. The last apparition happened on October 13th at Cova da Iria, where an estimated croud of about 50 to 70 thousand people, whitnessed a phenomenon that became famous as the “miracle of the Sun”.

Fatima - The Apparitions

Fatima, the name derives from a Moorish princess, is one of the most important Catholic shrines in the world which welcomes millions of pilgrims and tourists from around the globe every year, place where on the May 13th of 1917, three children, Jacinta Marto, Francisco Marto and Lucia de Jesus (known as the three shepherds)  witnessed the Virgin Mary appearances that had told them to built a chapel to honor Lady Mary of the White Rosary ( this is the “real” name of this shrine ) and She told them that She would return  six more times on the same day ( the 13th) at the same time in the following six months, from the 13th of May to the 13th of October and to pray the Rosary every day. Almost immediately a small chapel was built, known as “Capelinha das Aparicoes” ( Small Chapel of the appearances) in Fatima

The Shrine

Undoubtedly one of the most important Marian Shrines in the whole World, where we will pay homage to our Lady Mary in “Cova da Iria” by visiting the two existing Basilicas; Our Lady of the Rosary and Holy Trinity and of course the oldest, the Chapel of the Apparitions.
The Chapel of the Apparitions was the first Chapel to be built shortly after the apparitions of  Lady Mary, located in the center of the Sanctuary is a must-see, not for grandeur but for its meaning.

At one end the Basilica of Our Lady of the Rosary, built in 1928 with a neo-baroque architecture, here you will find the tombs of the three little shepherd children (Francisco and Jacinta), and now also the tomb of Sister Lucia who died in 2016, another end to the imposing Basilica of the Holy Trinity, built in 2007 with more than 8,000 seats and 40,000 m² of area designed by the Greek architect Alexandros Tombazis.

Tour Reviews

19 August, 2017

“Excellent way to visit Fatima!”

We booked a 5 hr trip to Fatima through Walkborder due to the highly positive reviews and the 5 hr timeframe (others are an hour shorter, which is tough given 90 min ride from Lisbon). Jorge was our guide and was wonderful, not only with his insights about Fatima, but in sharing his insight and tips about Portugal. 

We were picked up in a roomy Mercerdes van and Jorge was a delight throughout trip. He gave us layout of the Fatima grounds, explaining all the buildings and their significance, so we could use our time wisely. He also took us to a factory site (available only to tour groups) where you can shop for both religious and Portuguese items. Lastly, he drove us to village of the 3 children to see the homes they lived in.

One more thing, there was a big truck rollover on way to Fatima that delayed us a good half hr…Jorge extended the day so we wouldn’t be short-changed. Very gracious. Highly recommend this company. Wished we used them for Sintra too because it would have given us more insight and efficiency in spending our time there.
