Fatima became famous after the Virgin Mary appeared to the three children here in 1917. The Church recognized this to be a real miracle. Now, Fatima is regularly visited by pilgrims from all around the world (especially on the feast days of May 13th and October 13th). The huge square of the town is the place where all religious events take place, and the Basilica is home to different religious orders. After leaving the sanctuary, don’t forget to visit the wax museum depicting the history of it. Also, take a stroll through an olive grove.
