Fatima ShrineMay 23 in Portugal
In Fatima is a basilica built as a shrine to Mary, because she appeared here in 1917 to three children as they were shepherding their sheep. Two of the children, a brother and sister, died only a few years later, and are buried in the basilica. The other child, their cousin, grew up and became a nun. She lived into her 90s. About 4 million pilgrims travel here every year.
