Sanctuary of Fatima

The Sanctuary holds the tombs of Saints Francisco and Jacinta Marto.
It is practically impossible to speak of the region and not speak of the Sanctuary of Fatima. 

It is one of the greatest Marian sanctuaries in the entire world and approximately six million people come here every year. 
A place of pilgrimage, faith, and devotion, the most symbolic sites in the Sanctuary are the Chapel of the Apparitions – which was built where the Virgin Mary is sought to have appeared before the Little Shepherds; the Basilica of Our Lady of the Rosary – which holds the tombs of Saints Francisco and Jacinta Marto; the Basilica of the Holy Trinity; the Large Holm Oak; the block of the Berlin Wall; the Sanctuary’s Museum; and the Colonnade.
