Pope will visit Fatima, May 13, 2017
On May 13 2017 that apparitions of Our Lady of Fátima exactly 100 years ago to the three shepherd children in Fatima appeared. This happened in the next 6 months 6 times, each time on the 13th of each month. The last time the Sun Wonder was a big crowd attended on 13 October 1917. These two dates draw each year, most faithful to the pilgrimage to participate in the Candle Procession on the evening of the 12th and the Farewell Procession on the morning of the 13th.
To celebrate this special limitation comes Holiness Pope Franciscus to Fatima. In addition to regular pilgrimages and religious celebrations, this centennial celebration until October 13, 2017 celebrated with an extensive cultural program. This includes inter alia from various exhibitions, religious music concerts, performances on appearances, conferences, summer schools and the International Congress “Fatima Thinking”, which will take place in June.
Want to witness this festival and participate in the celebrations? Book your vacation at B & B Casa Traca. An hour’s drive away enough from the crowds but close enough to drive to it whenever you want. Enjoy the peace and the nearby B & B Casa Traca Valbona, Arganil.
