A Pilgrimage to Fatima

The Basilica and Sanctuary of the Rosary

The Basilica of the Rosary received its title in December 1954 granted by His Holiness, Pope Pius XII. It is situated in a vast open square, approximately twice as large as St. Peter's in Rome. This beautiful edifice is built of solid limestone with a tower that reaches 65 meters (213 feet) towards the heavens. It has fifteen altars corresponding to the fifteen decades of the Rosary in honor of Our Lady who here declared: "I am the Lady of the Rosary."
