  • Already was in Fatima the a few years ago, and no doubt this place is really religious. We feel more protected and motivated for the future. Without doubt, which with the restoration became much better.

  • A beautiful place to go to if you are Catholic and even if you are not. The design of the sanctuary is really good and you can learn there a little bit of Catholic history.
  • Of all the places I have visited this will always be my best. I don't know why but that is how I feel about this place.
  • Beautiful place, open 24 hours and no entry fee. Masses in different languages throughout the day and the times are listed online.
