Upon arrival at the Fátima Sanctuary, check out the basilica’s architecture and walk the inner square. Then, plan a lunch near the sanctuary and visit the local shops to encourage the workers.
Great for religious and non-religious individuals
Fátima is a small city with few attractions. We would say, the Fátima Sanctuary is one of the main attractions to visit. As mentioned earlier, there’s no need to be religious to admire the sanctuary.
It really depends on your allocated time, whether you’ve planned a group trip or rented a car.
As for visiting the Fátima Sanctuary, we recommend visiting the basilica, then making your way to the inner square. We also recommend paying a visit to the local shops on ‘Praceta de Santo Antonio’. There’s a kind of flea market where they sell various religious goods.
