Places to explore in Fatima

Fatima is a wonderful spot not only for religious people, but also for everyone who is looking for a peaceful place to relax, meditate, get closer to the nature or rest. However, it is surrounded by holy places that you can’t miss for historical purposes.

Fatima Day 1

The Sanctuary of Our Lady of Fatima

Built in 1928 | Gives you a brief overview of the history of the town and 3 main characters, Portuguese children named Francisco Marto, Jacinta Marto and Sister Lucia dos Santos | Free entrance | Open 24/7

Fatima Day 2

Casa de Lucia (The house of Lucia)

It is a very small house where Lucia grew up | Saved and minimally renovated over the years | It features various pictures from Lucia’s life | The whole town is still around the house, undisturbed and still residential | Some things here are touchable, but some rooms remain such that you can only walk by and not into the room.

Fatima Day 11

Case de Francisco and Jacinta Marto

It is also a small house where two other children lived | Walking through the home can be emotional to think of how they lived at that time | Very simple and modest | The surrounding area has a lot of nice shops for souvenirs and cafes for sandwiches and drinks

Loca Do Anjo 

Park like surroundings with a beautiful floral fragrance | It is a a beautiful tribute to the Lady of Fatima, the Children and the Stations of the Cross | You could spend hours in meditation and reflection here.

  1. I’m one of those people who has been to Portugal but missed Fatima. Seems like a really nice place. As I have to go back to Portugal anyway to see Porto, Fatima will be added on the next Portugal trip list.

  2. Portugal, I think it’s one of the most underrated places in Europe (in my opinion). Which religion is dominant in that area? Catholic? Protestant? Nevertheless they have beautiful churches!

    I have never heard of Fatima before…it sounds like a fascinating small town. Thanks for sharing, Agness.

  4. Looks gorgeous. I’ve always wanted to go to Portugal. It’s neat that you were able to get off the beaten path and explore a lesser known town.

  5. I’ve been to Portugal and to Fatima. Very beautiful country with beautiful people. Fatima is a very spiritual place and I’m glad I made the day trip from Lisbon. Thanks for sharing!

    We visited it before and I was deeply moved by the people who are there for religious purposes. I’m a Catholic but not very religious however when I was there, I felt so different. The faith of people visiting that place is just really powerful I guess.

    I wasn’t able to go around though, we just visited the small chapel and the facade of the church. :(
