Fatima is one of the most important shrines in the Catholic world since the apparitions of Our Lady to three little shepherds in this small town in the year of 1917. Since then, thousands of pilgrims have been coming to Fátima every year to visit the sacred sites of the apparitions and to attend the religious ceremonies, chiefly between May and October, where the visions of the Virgin Mary occurred.

Batalha is famous for the monastery of great dimensions and refined Gothic architecture, built between the 14th and 16th centuries.
