“Jacinta and Franciscos Niece.....”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2014

We walked into this small home. The feeling of Peace surrounded me. We were shown around by an older lady. She was very calming - she explained that the bed in the corner was where Francisco died. What an amazing feeling knowing that we were in the house of the little boy and girl that saw the apparition of Mary.
After some time of walking around, we stumbled on some photos on the wall - the little girl in the photo looked very much like the older lady showing us around - so, we asked her - did she know the Family Jacinta and Francisco? She replied - "I am their Niece. This is why I am in the photo you are looking at." - We went into Shock!!! We just assumed that there were no Family members left. We had this immediate urge to hug her and she was kind enough to hug us back. The experience was very "Uplifting", and I strongly recommend the visit to this little house. Please say hello to her from us……

“Timeless”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2014

Like going back in time you can feel the family's presence. The area is well looked after and not spoilt. We took the little train to the children's village and it was lovely.

“AMAZIING !!!!!!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2014

The house is just as it was when the apparitions happened in 1917. The bed where Francisco died is in this house. I met Francisco`s and Jacinta`s niece, and she is right directly across the road and she will be more than happy to show you personal items of the two shepperd children, even Jacinta`s little earing and head coverings.

“The Saints lives are not easy”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2014

It is incredible to imagine the two came from such poor backgrounds and were so pious.Jacinta would even not eat the little she got to offer sacrifices to the less fortunate!She was among the less fortunate ones. Having to look after sheep and not play children games. There is still a Nephew of them alife. Francisco was a tough boy! He knew he would die before the others but he did not dislike the idea!
