Basilica of the Rosary

Fátima, located 88 miles north of Lisbon, is home to the world famous shrine dedicated to the Virgin Mary. Annually Fátima's Sanctuary welcomes millions of pilgrims from all over the world. It was between May and October 1917 that apparitions of Our Lady of the Rosary appeared to three shepherd children: Lucia dos Santos, Francisco and Jacinta. The last visitation, on October 13th, was witnessed by 60,000 people and is known as 'the day the sun danced'.
