Fatima

Fátima is a civil parish in the municipality of Ourém, Portugal

 

The civil parish has been permanently associated with the Marian apparitions that were purportedly witnessed by three shepherd children at the Cova da Iria in 1917. The Catholic Church later recognized these events as "worthy of belief". A small chapel was built here in honor of Our Lady of Fátima, beginning in 1918, and a statue of her installed; the chapel and statue have since been enclosed within a large shrine and basilicas. Associated facilities, including a hotel and medical facility, have also been built over the decades. Each year thousands of pilgrims visit the Sanctuary of Our Lady of Fátima.
