A beautifully kept area of dramatic scale. The torchlight procession is worth seeing and Fatima is clearly a moving location for pilgrims.

We tried asking the hotel about the candlelight procession schedule and hardly anyone can confirm if it is happening on weekends only or specific weekdays. Hope the the Faima Management is reading this.

We were here last week. It was a really other kind of catholic experience. Some people are really deep believer and it was a big expression to see this. The areal is really nice designed.

We wanted to go to Fatima even though it was 4 hours from our hotel, but it was so good and as a Catholic, very blessed to get to see and feel how moving it all was. You have .got to go if you can.

Fatima is mainly a religious visit place. Th complex is huge with several buildings in it. The main basilica with the small chapel where the first aberration occurred are the main buildings.

This is quite an impressive shrine and certainly reflects the significance of the story that occurred here.

Fatima is a beautiful pilgrimage site. A full day is enough to catch all the sites. Try and participate in mass if possible. Very beautiful .It is important to understand the story of the 3 shepherd children before your visit.
