  • I was blessed to visit the Basilica during the Feast of the Miracle of the Sun. Despite the incredible crowds, I felt serenity and solemnity in this space. It is a must visit during a trip to Fatima

  • I am not sure the essence of this place can truly be communicated in a review. It is a beautiful Basilica in a wonderful religious square. The architecture, while regal and impressive, remains understated to the spirit and purpose of this place as appropriate. Come here and rest, breathe, contemplate and let go. Offer and visit the tombs of the children. Pray for them and the world and all. I hope to have the opportunity to visit often.
  • Beautiful place Please follow the signs to enter and exit. They have it setup as one way loop. There are bathrooms right outside I would use prior to entering g the whole area. You can see the power of this place in pictures added to this review.
