Owner description: This national shrine is the site where three young peasant shepherds spied a "lady brighter than the sun," which was, many believe, the first of six apparitions of the Virgin Mary in this region of Portugal.

Being a catholic and visiting the shrine was the most full filling experience for me and my family. It was so peaceful and humbling to pray at the shrine

“Not only for believers”
Reviewed August 12, 2014

This place is amazing, not only if you believe in God, but if you want to observe a peaceful and religious monument. Enjoy the restaurants and hotels around

“so disappointing”
Reviewed August 9, 2014 via mobile

There is nothing spiritual in Fatima.
They (the church,the city,or the businesses)have made a mockery out a once significant religious place.
Without declaring my religion this place is packed with commercialism and symbolic ritual.Far from being uplifting it's depressing to see so many people trying to buy favours for heaven.There would be more harmony in the world if the visitors gave money to the poor and needy rather than spend it at this religious circus.
I am sure Jesus didn't inspire the mass and sacraments to be used so commercially.

“Prayful”
Reviewed August 3, 2014

Perfect place to pray to our lady. The area is kept perfectly clean and there is always a service going on from mass to the rosary or just a quiet moment to pray.

“Solid trip”
Reviewed August 3, 2014

It's supposed to be a very holy place for people all over the world, so it was definitley worth seeing. At least I can say I was there. Check it out if you can, but don't spend more than 2 hours there.
