Fátima Portugal

Since 1917, Fatima has been a holy city. The Virgin Mary is said to have appeared to three shepherd children. The Apparitions of Mary, transformed the city into one of the largest centres of Marian devotion in the world. Two huge churches were built over a vast 1km-long esplanade where the virgin appeared, the Basilica de Fatima and the Igreja da Santissima Trinidade, with a seating capacity of 9000 pilgrims. Every year, folk of all nationalities and creeds come here to prove their faith and ask for miracles. Fatima has become a symbol for Christian Portugal and the town’s essence is its Basilica. Inside the basilica the bodies of two children who claimed to have seen the Virgin are buried; the tombs of Jacinta and Francisco can be visited. The epicentre of the town is the Sanctuary of Our Lady Fatima. The major manifestations of devotees occur on May 13, when the Farewell Procession takes place. But the most beautiful sight is on the night of the 12th of May during the Candlelight Procession which sees thousands of visitor carry lighted candles. Around the town there are plenty of lodgings and hotels to accommodate the pilgrim masses as well as restaurants and shops, mainly of religious merchandising.
