Fatima without a doubt one of the most sought for religious centers in the world, where three children (shepherds) witnessed the apparition of the Virgin Mary on May 13, 1917. “… a lady more brilliant than the sun… “appeared to the three children, calling them to the need of praying. The Madonna told them that she would again appear on that same date and time for five consecutive months. At the last apparition on October 13, about 70,000 people gathered to witniss the Virgin Mary perform what became known as “Miracle of the Sun” (“… the sun began to spin swiftly like a ball of fire and the clothes of people who were completely wet from the rain that day, suddenly were completely dried up…”)
Obidos an open museum where medieval times are felt in this picturesque environment, so well preserved over the centuries. Being used countless times as a “wedding gift” from Kings to their future Queens, with its narrow streets, cobbled streets, white houses with flowers on the window sils, make Obidos one of the most enjoyable villages in Portugal for visitors.
