irrespective of your beliefs this is a well maintained simple house that is quite humbling and if you don't mind walking from fatima there is an excellent footpath(via sacra valinhos-aljustrel)that is an absolute pleasure to walk along and do follow every footpath as i am sure what you will see will impress you as much as it impressed me.

This small house museum will appeal to those who know the story of the three children who received the Virgin Mary’s apparitions in 1917. You get to see the room where Francisco and Jacinta were born and the room where Francisco died. The house also gives an idea of the humble yet homely lifestyle enjoyed by the children. There is little information available but the atmosphere is evocative. What I found odd, however, is that almost all of the things in the house are reproductions (so I was told by a local). Many original items, including the actual bed in which Francisco died, are in the house across the street! Apparently the family moved there after the children died. That second house also has a very useful family tree on display showing what a huge family the three children came from. Another odd thing I found is that a stone wall outside the original house is signposted as the place where the three children were photographed in a famous image from 1917. I saw some visitors taking photos of themselves there which was a bit surreal. All in all though, the place is very well worth a visit if you are interested in the Fatima story.

To be in that home and see the simple lifestyle they lived is a humbling experience. We have so much today compared to how they lived

Seeing the home where the children grew up, puts into context the simple life of the people in the area. It is a humbling experience

Located in Aljustrel around 1.5 miles from the Sanctuary at Cova da Iris it is a 45 minute walk thru beautiful olive groves along the via sacra Stations of the Cross. Shows the simple life of the seers. Very inspiring and peaceful.
