Fatima

4.3
Fátima is a civil parish in the municipality of Ourém, in the Portuguese Santarém District. The population in 2011 was 11,596, in an area of 71.84 km². The parish encompasses several villages and localities of which Fátima, with a population of 7,756 residents, is the largest. Part of the urban agglomeration of Leiria, it is 187km south of Porto and 123km north of Lisbon.The civil parish has been permanently associated with the Marian apparitions that were 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 at this site. Each year thousands of pilgrims visit the Sanctuary of Our Lady of Fátima.HistoryThe name of the town and parish is a rendition of the Arabic given name Fátima (فاطمة Fāṭimah). (Fatimah is the namesake of Fatimah bint Muhammad, a daughter of the prophet of Islam Muhammad.)
Fatima is in Santarem District. Whether you only want to go to Fatima, or have a whole adventure planned, Inspirock has you covered with our user-friendly Portugal trip planner.

Where to stay in Fatima

Supposedly the site of visions of the Virgin Mary back in 1917, Fatima has become a hot spot for visitors and tourists on pilgrimages to its holy sites. Check into one of the town's mid-range hotels and guesthouses, located primarily along the streets leading up to the main square and the Fatima sanctuary. This way you can indulge in comfortable rooms, relatively low prices, and plenty of amenities like pools and restaurants, all within walking distance of the main religious and historical attractions.
