Places to see:

Santuário de Fátima (Sanctuary of Fátima)

The sanctuary was built near the area of Cova da Iria where Our Lady of Fátima appeared to the three shepherds in 1917. It’s one of the most important Marian sanctuaries in the world belonging to the catholic church. It was disguised with three gold roses and visited by popes Paulo VI (1967), João Paulo II (1982, 1991 and 2000), Benedict XVI (2010) and Francisco (2017).

Basílica Nossa Senhora do Rosário (Basilica of Our Lady of the Rosary)

The building was designed by the architect Gerardus Samuel Van Krieken and continued by João Antunes, built with limestone of the area. The structure has a colonnade with 200 columns and 14 altars with 17 statues over them. It was blessed on May 13th of 1958.

Capela das aparições (Chapel of the Apparitions)

The chapel of apparitions is the principal structure of the shrine of Fátima because it was in that place that our lady appeared and talked with the shepherds. From the six apparitions, five happened in this place where, in her honor, the chapel was built, in 1919.

Basilica da Santissima Trindade (Basilica the holy trinity)

Due to the high number of pilgrims it was necessary to build a new church. In 1997 the Greek architect Alexandro Tombazis won an international contest done by the shrine to construct the new church. In 2007 the church was dedicated by Cardinal Tarcisio Bertone then Secretary of State of the Vatican and legate of Benedict XVI. Inside the church there’s a bronze crucifix above the altar with 3 meters and gold color symbolizing the fidelity to god and holiness.

Museu de cera (Wax Museum)
