      Lisbon, Portugal
      From (USD) $

      About This Lisbon Tour

      On May 13, 1917, as World War I raged throughout much of Europe, three children in Fatima were playing in a field, on a break from tending their sheep.

      Suddenly, the sky filled with a bright flash of light, as if from a storm. The children decided to head home in case it rained, even though the sky above was clear. But as they began walking the pasture, they saw another bright flash, and a beautiful lady dressed all in white appeared and spoke to them.

      This was the first apparition of Mary, the Mother of Jesus, there in the small town of Fatima. In the midst of the most devastating war the world had yet seen, she instructed the children to pray for an end to global violence and asked them if they would bear suffering on behalf of the world's sinners. On her last appearance, the Virgin requested the construction of a chapel in her honor. The results of that request are visited by an estimated seven million religious pilgrims each year.

      The Chapel of Apparitions is a humble gathering place with a marble pillar and glass-enclosed statue of the Virgin on the exact spot where she is said to have appeared. Small masses are held there almost every day; many of them are livestreamed so that millions of devout Catholics around the world can participate.

      Less than three years after the apparitions, two of the three children, ages 10 and 11, were dead. But Lucia, who the Virgin said she chose to spread her heavenly message, lived to 97.

      Whatever your beliefs, Fatima is a moving tribute to the power of faith, the grandeur of its holy sites rooted in the testaments of three children watching over a flock of sheep.

      Papal premonition

      Lucia, the child who lived the longest, said the Virgin gave her three secrets. In 1943, she wrote down and sealed the last of them; it was opened in 2000 by Pope John Paul II, who said it spoke of a holy bishop dressed in white attacked by a gunman – as he had been in 1981. He personally placed a bullet from the assassination attempt in the crown of a statue of Mary that resides in the Chapel of Apparitions, crediting her with saving his life.
