    Stop At: Sanctuary of Our Lady of Fátima, 2495-402 Fátima, Portugal

    The Shrine of Fatima, formally named by the Catholic Church as the Shrine of Our Lady of the Rosary of Fatima, is a Marian shrine dedicated to Our Lady of Fatima, located on the site of the Cova da Iria, in the city of Fatima, Ourém, Portugal .

    The Sanctuary of Fátima is, par excellence, a place of Christian pilgrimage and Catholic devotion, preserving the memory of the events that led to its foundation, namely the apparitions of Our Lady to the three little shepherds - Lúcia dos Santos, Francisco and Jacinta Marto - in 1917 Its magnitude and relevance from the religious point of view has long been widely recognized nationally and internationally. By express will of the Holy Apostolic See, this is a National Shrine. It is also one of the most important Marian shrines in the world belonging to the Catholic Church and the largest international religious tourism destination, receiving around six million visitors a year. He was distinguished with three papal gold roses and visited by Popes Paul VI (1967), John Paul II (1982, 1991 and 2000), Benedict XVI (2010) and Francisco (2017).

    Its construction began in 1919 with the construction of the Chapel of the Apparitions; over the years the sanctuary was expanded, counting today with two basilicas, which represented a significant increase in the capacity of reception of pilgrims in covered area. However, the various urban plans created to order their growth had little practical effect, and the complex we see today is more a result of timely interventions that meet the needs of the moment than of a unified and long-term planning. On the other hand, the powerful impulse generated by the Shrine of Fatima was responsible for the exponential growth of an area of ​​the country that had not been very developed until then.

    Stylistically diversified, integrating buildings of a revivalist character along with more modern ones, the Shrine of Fatima is composed mainly of the Chapel of Apparitions, the Prayer Room (exterior), the Basilica of Our Lady of the Rosary and the respective Colonnade, the the Basilica of the Most Holy Trinity, the retreat houses of Nossa Senhora do Carmo and Nossa Senhora das Dores, a Via Sacra in Valinhos and the Paul VI Pastoral Center. It also has cultural spaces and several other buildings for the administrative sectors, reception of pilgrims, medical care, commerce, meetings and congresses, and other activities. The sanctuary also had the contribution of artists of several generations, national and international, who for there realized a numerous and diverse set of works.
