This tour is exclusively dedicated to the region of Fátima and its most emblematic places that are part of the origin of the religious phenomenon. When we reach Fátima you can visit the Sanctuary grounds, a place of great symbolism since it was here that between 1916 and 1917 the figure of Our Lady presented herself to the Three Shepherds to communicate a set of revelations.
In Fátima there is much to see, namely the Chapel of the Apparitions that marks the most precise place where they happened. Today, the Sanctuary has become an impressive place of faith and it is virtually impossible to remain indi¤erent to the energy that hangs in the air, even for non-believers. There are two basilicas here: the one of Our Lady of the Rosary, made of stone and marble in neo-baroque style. The Holy Trinity Basilica is much more recent (2007) being the fourth largest Catholic temple in the world in capacity.
In addition to these sites at opposite points of the Sanctuary, you will have time to observe other places, such as the home of the Three Shepherds (Francisco and Jacinta Marto's house and Lucia's house), in the town of Aljustrel. In this space, we can find a faithful reconstruction of scenes from other times using old objects such as family photographs, clothes, kitchen utensils, furniture, among others. A unique tour through the faith and history of one of the most famous places in Portugal.
