The holy shrine of Our Lady of Fatima, which includes the Basilica of Our Lady of the Rosary, is located in the central Portuguese town of Fatima. It is the sight of several apparitions of the Virgin Mary reported by three shepherd children in 1917. As one of the Catholic Religion's most sacred places, millions of people make pilgrimages to the site every year, many crawling on their knees in prayer for great distances.<br />
