Fatima's Basilica is the resting place for all
three children, shepherds who experienced
the miracle of seeing the Virgin Mary in 1917.

Fatima has become Portugal's leading
Catholic pilgrimage site.
Two of the girls died very young, from the flu
epidemic of 1918-1920.  
The third girl grew up to enter a convent,
dying in 2005.     
This Chapel was placed on the spot where
the vision took place.  I have video of a
service here at night with candles.  
After dark here is the Basilica and a statue of Jesus.
