Fátima, alb and serene, raises imponent its Sanctuary which charms at first sight. Mystic land, relentless search of faith, safe haven of all who seek light, harmony and peace. Fátima, visited by millions, who remind, in a singular miracle of extreme motivation. Land of aching and returns, that always offers the necessary stillness to who bravely crosses its ways.
Throughout the year, thousands of pilgrims set their course to the World’s Altar to kneel before Our Lady of Fátima, in one of the most impressive manifestations of faith, peace, and spirituality the world witnesses every year since 1917. The history of Fátima is permanently associated to the existence of three children: Lúcia and her cousins, Franscisco and Jacinta Marto. The sweetness and innocent faith of little and humble shepherds led them to see the most holy image: that of Our Lady.
Placed 100 meters from the Sanctuary, this magnificent Wax Museum gives you the opportunity, through scenes of great realism, to revive the most relevant happenings that Fátima has celebrated as the World’s Altar.
