Join this classic week-long pilgrimage to Fatima with the Joe Walsh Tours team in Portugal led by Elsa Silva and Carina Vieira. 

Located north of Lisbon, the sanctuary of Fatima was built to commemorate the events that took place in 1917, when the Virgin Mary appeared to three local shepherd children: Lúcia dos Santos and her cousins, Jacinta and Francisco Marto. She first appeared on 13th May and would then visit them on the 13th of each month until her last appearance on 13th October 1917, when the ‘Miracle of the Sun’ took place.

The magnificent Basilica of Our Lady of the Rosary overlooking the square is the gathering point for thousands of pilgrims that visit the sanctuary every year and where they join in procession.

The Joe Walsh Tours team in Fatima led by knowledgeable Elsa Silva and Carina Vieira has prepared a detailed programme for the pilgrimage so you can experience the Sanctuary in full.

The Chapel of Aparitions Capelinha das Aparições, the Via Sacra to Cova da Iria, the Way of the Cross and the childhood homes of the three shepherd children in the nearby villages of Aljustrel and Valinhos are some of the most special places for pilgrims in Fatima. 

We work closely with hotels near the Sanctuary to provide quality accommodation and meals for our groups of pilgrims in Fatima. We hope you enjoy the experience.
