Fatima filling for pilgrimage, nothing like last year

Hundreds of pilgrims are already in Fatima for the international May pilgrimage to the sanctuary, a year after the visit by Pope Francis and the canonisation of the shepherds Francisco and Jacinta Marto.

The parks around the sanctuary already have people camping and camper vans are parked, but there are still many spaces unlike last year for the 12 and 13 May pilgrimage, which celebrated the 100th anniversary of the events at Cova da Iria, Lusa could see on Thursday.

The ceremonies this year begin at 18:30 on Saturday (12 May) and finish on Sunday with a mass, the blessing of the sick and a procession starting at 10am.
