The basilica honors the recorded sightings in 1916 of an angel believed to be the Virgin Mary.

  • Full disclosure - I am not a Christian. But this place was still something else for me. So calming and soothing. The church and the altar, the organ music and the chanting, everything reverberating...

  • On my drive from Porto to Lisbon, I wanted to stop here, especially after I read the story how this place developed to become that spiritual. We parked free right outside and entered the church...

  • It has been my great privilege to visit Fatima and bring others there on four different occasions. Mary, the Mother of God cares for all of her children. She is the answer. The rosary is her weapon, and in the end her Immaculate Heart will triumph. Choose her way to God now as it is getting very near the time of God’s Justice being manifested. Her singular desire is to bring us to her Son, Our Lord and God, Jesus Christ. Ave Maria.
  • Expansive and peaceful. Just like every mothers arms. Dial time a few notches down and take in the exquisite architecture and the stories connected.
