Fátima Things to Do: 40 reviews and 48 photos


For many people the most impressive sight is the intense emotion and faith of the penitents who approach the shrine on their knees. In the past, the number of people who came to Fátima on their knees was huge, sometimes they walk on their knees for many kilometers (or miles) on end. But now the Catholic Church tries to discourage that sort of behavior.

Please see in my travelogue "Popular devotion" some sights of that sort of devotion.
