The Shrine of our Lady of the Rosary of Fatima is a one of Portugal’s National Shrines. On 13 August 1917, the first apparition of Our Lady to the three young shepherds – Lucia de Jesus, Francisco Marto and Jacinta Marto – was a turning point for the history of the little Portuguese town of Fatima. Following the will of the Lady of the Rosary, a chapel was built in 1919 on the very place of the apparitions at the Cova da Iria (a locality close to Fatima). Since then, the construction of a Shrine was started, in order to respond to the significant and increasing flow of pilgrims. The Shrine of Fatima is a place of pilgrimage and prayer, which keeps the memory of its founding event and the message of Our Lady of the Rosary. It has the mission of studying and diffusing this message, worked as a means of evangelization in Portugal and worldwide. Through its services of pastoral care for children, youth and the sick and the support for the organisation of pilgrimages, the Shrine of Fatima builds on the message of Our Lady of the Rosary and spreads it to the world through those who yearly come to the place of the apparitions.
