The Shrine of Our Lady of Fatima in Portugal is one of most famous Marian shrines in the world. Some four million people visit Fatima each year, drawn by apparitions of the Virgin Mary reported by three local shepherd children Jacinta, Francis and Lucia in 1917, for six times on every 13th of the month from May to October.

What began as a devotion to Our Lady in 1954, took the shape of a Shrine of Our Lady of Fatima in 1955, and eventually became a place of natural beauty, communal prayer, and renewal for the Faithful of Mangalore who began visiting this place of prayer. The magnificence and natural beauty of the Shrine is highlighted by a beautiful Dome that has been in place since 1959. The Outdoor Stations of the Cross constructed in cement in the same year, have ever since been a source of great spiritual appeal, attracting large crowds every year, especially on Lenten Fridays.
