We spent time in Fatima on the way to Porto from Lisbon. The whole place was incredible. La Capela is a small building to the side of the church. There are services going on almost all the time. The story of the 3 children, where...More

Services are held periodically during the day for the faithful to attend. They are held in a number of languages. Check the schedule if interested. The chapel itself is mostly outdoors, with some glass walls. In the center is a beautiful rustic chapel around which...More

This is a chapel built on the first aberrations of Mary that is believe to have occurred. Its a small chapel , the day I was here the festival was in progress so was crowded and mass going on continuously outside.

I am not but I found the whole idea of the miracle, etc. interesting and to see the sights that are related to the story was thought provoking. There was a service ongoing while I was there so could not get too close.

Capela Das Aparicoes is a very well designed structure in the place where supposedly the Virgin appeared to the three children. There is a staue of the Virgin, and this place worth a visit to have a moment to think and pray.

The piety, the immotions, the holiness. It is magical! There is the presence of God here, in all languages, thoughts, physical and more. One place to visit before you die. Whether Christian or not.
