  • This is a Pilgrimage site for Roman Catholics. But it is well worth a visit - it's scale and ambitious are simply breathtaking. That's it. All I'm going to say. Entry was free when I was there. So was parking. So was toilet. Everything spotless.
  • for Catholics, a great place to visit... celebration of the holy mass is done in different languages... the whole place got wheelchair access... for non-Catholics, it is a great place to appreciate architecture and history of the apparition of our Lady... one does not need to be a believer to say that the place is a magnificent and special..there are loads of shops and restaurants around that is walking distance...
  • When u see people kneeling n going to our lady of Fatima you realize how little is your faith compared to theirs
  • 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.
  • A beautiful sanctuary, the Basilica of Our Lady of the Rosary with the tombs of Lucia, Jacinda & Francisco is lovely.
