One of the top attractions in Fatima is its basilica, which dates from 1953. And so here begins our fleeting, but intense journey through the land of the Marian apparitions. The basilica is cloistered in a large open area, and is one of the top places to visit in Fatima. It can host up to one million people. It's excellent construction makes it possible to accommodate all the pilgrims who visit the municipality daily.
One of the many things to see in Fatima, if the pilgrims have not taken it over, is the tree where the apparitions occurred. It's located to the left of the square looking from the basilica. Thousands of pilgrims have tried to seize a piece of the sacred object. Unfortunately, it's not very well preserved.
The second of the many Fatima attractions is the Chapel of the Apparitions, where the new tree has sprouted. Inside you'll see one of the most attractive places to visit in Fatima, the bodies of two children who reported seeing the virgin. Our journey ends with some of the last Fátima activities, which includes visiting the Igreja da Santissima Trindade. For believers it may be on the list of the best stuff to do in Fatima. It's a Wax Museum that depicts scenes of the miracle and is a great place to bring children. Still wondering what to do in Fatima? Explore the experiences shared by minube users to find out more!
