"Late night arrival and too late to see the masses!" Fátima by angiebabe
Fátima Travel Guide: 87 reviews and 184 photos
Twive a year ie 12-13 May and October there are catholic pilgrimages with crowds of up to 100,000 arriving for the anniversaries of the apparitions of Mary to 3 young girls from the village of Fatima back in 1917.
I had intentions to arrive on the 12th to see the crowds and atmosphere but had got tantalised with seeing the windmills and greats that are Toledo, Avila and Salamanca in Spain. The morning of the 13th i watched some of the pilgrimage televised on tv while having breakfast in my hotel in Penhas de Saude before commencing my tour around the Serra de Estrela!! Which i did, got to the Torr, Sabagueiro, Linhares before driving madly off to Fatima arriving at about 9pm!
