"Fatima - A pilgrims destination" Fátima by gubbi1

Fátima Travel Guide: 93 reviews and 218 photos

I have heard so much about Fatima, so that I was really curious to see what it is all about. Myself, I am potestant, but this has no meaning when it is about curiosity. I was impressed by all the burden the people coming there load on themself. Partly they walk for hundreds of kilometers in a really short time and their feet get damaged. Others go on there knees for a long distance...
The tiles show the story of the occurance of Maria at the olivetree.
