A pilgrimage to Fatima is different from any other journey. It requires preparation of the body and mind.
The walk to Fatima is different from all other walks or travels particularly since this is a spiritual one.
You should walk daily in order to prepare. You should start preparing a few days before pilgrimage in order to be able to stand the long daily walk.
Sun exposure, excessive exercise, and insects are the main enemies of pilgrims on foot.
Fatima’s annual schedule for religious events is filled with highly spiritual and symbolic moments, which is the case of the Candlelight Procession, where thousands of worshippers light up the prayer area; a magic scenario that is as impressive as the Farewell Procession.
