Since then Fatima has grown exponentially becoming one of the largest religious center in the whole world, attracting every year thousands of people seeking answers to their faith.
Fatima is an important center of inspiration for the Christian faith, but it also has on its periphery a few attractions that can entice those seeking alternatives.
Very close we can find the caves of Mira d Aire, caves of Santo António and Alvados caves of the Currency, the peculiar Polge de Minde (sea Minde), the Eco Bear Pia of Sensory Park, Ourem Castle and the Monastery Batalha.
Relatively close also has the Dam of Castelo de Bode, the Convent of Christ in Tomar, Almourol Castle, the Castle of Pombal and the Castle of Leiria.
To describe Fatima in a few lines, it’s actually a challenge because there are almost no words to describe the City of Peace.
Only by visiting, we can realize and find adjectives to describe the place that Our Lady chose to make herself known to mankind and pronounce she’s Message.
Message was received here by three little kids (the 3 little shepherds: Jacinta, Francisco and Lucia), but it quickly spread throughout the world.
The message that since 1917 we all seek to live endures and will endure forever because those are the realities and values that we all want to achieve: the knowledge of God and the path to true happiness.
Come and live Fatima!
