Treading the road to Fátima
The annual pilgrimage to one of Catholicism's holiest shrines
Fátima in central Portugal is the location of one of Catholicism's holiest shrines—and a religious tourism hot spot! Every year, thousands of Christian pilgrims descend on this unassuming town to celebrate events that occurred in 1917, when three children purportedly witnessed visions of the Virgin Mary in nearby hills.
