Owner description: This national shrine is the site where three young peasant shepherds spied a "lady brighter than the sun," which was, many believe, the first of six apparitions of the Virgin Mary in this region of Portugal.

Always hoped that I would visit there someday and that moment was realised in May 2011 as the Anniversary of the Apparitions began on May 13. What a joyous occasion. Open Air Mass, Candlelight Procession and a tremendous appreciative crowd in attendance. Words are inadequate to describe the feeling, the atmosphere and the general aura.

Awe inspiring religious celebrations outdoors with colossal crowds, pervaded by an aura of tranquility and reverence.

I was prepared for overcrowded, commercialized tourism, much like Rome. Instead there was a heavenly peace unlike anywhere I have ever been. The modern, clean, open space should have felt cold-instead it truly was celestial.
We arrived just in time for a plein air Mass. There were six very special priests from over the world presiding. Though they didn't know each other they were clearly unified in world prayer. They had great Face Reading. The sermon was beautiful and sharing the mass with international travelers was special.
3/4 into the service a stray dog made a quiet and gentle entrance. He lie down and took in the beautiful energy much as an invited guest. The best kind of dog therapy I can think of!
We loved Portugal; Fatima was the highlight of the trip.
Don't miss this wonderful experience!

I was amazed at the size of this site. The area around the basilica must have been 3 football fields in length. The museum must be seen to understand what happened and the history of the site. The tour is 1 euro and the sister conducting the tour definitely had a gift. She answered many questions and made everything very clear. If you are Catholic, you will understand.

Our Lady of Fatima holy site in Fatima, Portugal is a most attractive and worthwhile trip for all to see. Very much on the scope of Vatican City but with a more holy prayer site for believers.
