Learn about the miracle of the Virgin's apparition to three shepherd children in 1917.
This is now Portugal's biggest church and possibly the fourth largest Catholic church in the world.
Then, you’ll be surprised at the new Church of the Most Holy Trinity. Consecrated on October 12, 2007, on the occasion of the 90th anniversary of the apparitions of Fatima.
Then we'll spend some time at the famous Factory of Fatima workshop. Where you can buy rosaries and other religious articles.
Also we have free time for lunch.
After the lunch we start our second part of the tour by walking around 1 mile in "Via Sacra". The Holy Way that is composed of 14 little chapels in memory of the Passion of Our Lord. We'll follow the path which the little shepherds took when going from Aljustrel to the Cova da Iria.
Before coming back to Lisbon we´ll visit homes of the little shepherds, Lucia dos Santos, Francisco and Jacinta Marto, in Aljustrel. Which have not undergone any notable transformation since the Apparitions. At the bottom of the garden of Lucia's home is the well. Where the "Angel of Peace", the "Angel of Portugal", appeared for the second time in 1916.
