Legend

The name Fatima is strongly linked to religion. It was in that village in 1917 that a woman in white appeared to three children while they were keeping their sheep. The apparitions were repeated on the thirteenth of every month until October of that year. Since then, Fatima is for many, a city of apparitions, devotions and strong religious belief. But the name Fatima, is older than that.
