About The Walking Pilgrimage to Fatima
Fátima was only a small unknown village in Portugal, until in the late spring of 1917, when a young peasant girl named Lucia, and her two cousins, Francisco and Jacinta, saw an apparition of a beautiful lady dressed in white, holding a rosary. Lucia described her as being more brilliant than the sun and “radiated light more clear and intense than a crystal glass filled with sparkling water, when the rays of the burning sun shine through it.” As word of the children’s apparitions spread, the lives of these three simple shepherds and their village would change forever.
Today, Fátima is one of the most important places of Catholic worship in the world, attracting millions of pilgrims annually. It is a charming city, with striking architecture and a compelling history. Located in the Central Region of Portugal, it is considered to be the most religious city in Portugal. Join us on this 8-Day Pilgrimage along The Portuguese Way!
