Two out of three of its predictions have already come true: about the end of World War II and the return of Russia to the church.

Unfortunately, the fate of these children is sad, two of them died of the disease shortly after the events of the Virgin Mary as the one they had predicted, and Lucia lived a long life – she became a nun, and more than 15 years been silent about the Virgin Mary predictions and only in the late 30 ‘s, decided to write about the events of 1917. Every year on May 13 and October 13, thousands of pilgrims come here to celebrate this miracle. They built a church in Fatima, with an area twice as large than the front of the cathedral of St. Peter’s Basilica in the Vatican. Here, pilgrims are asked to healing, for this to the left of the church are located the tent, where you can buy candles from small to huge sizes (with human growth), also left, the oven in which you can burn different parts of the body (hands, feet), made of wax .

People asking for the grace of God, move on a special track on his knees to the temple. There is also a sacred spring, where you can type the healing of the purest water. An incredible place with strong energy!
