Important Places around the Shrine of Fatima, Portugal

Besides what you can see inside the Fatima Shrine in Portugal, there are many other places from the Sanctuary which are significant in the history of the Apparitions of the Blessed Mother. This is the reason why it is not enough to just stay for one night when you do the Pilgrimage here. Let me enumerate some of these places below.

Here,  the seers were baptized and were welcomed into the Christian community.
