  • I was blessed to visit the Basilica during the Feast of the Miracle of the Sun. Despite the incredible crowds, I felt serenity and solemnity in this space. It is a must visit during a trip to Fatima

  • As far as basilicas/cathedrals/churches go, it is not the most ornate or beautiful. The structure itself is quite impressive, as is the huge square in front of it but I can't really imagine someone...

  • Beautiful place Please follow the signs to enter and exit. They have it setup as one way loop. There are bathrooms right outside I would use prior to entering g the whole area. You can see the power of this place in pictures added to this review.
  • Really large cathedral with grand gardens and patios…for lack of a better word for patios. Gift shop somewhat limited. Enjoyed the opportunity to visit!!!
