A Pilgrimage to Fatima

The Capelinha

Our Lady told the three child seers that She wished a chapel to be built in Her honor on the site where She had appeared. On August 6, 1918, on the feast of the Transfiguration, construction of the chapel began. On the night of March 6, 1922, the chapel was dynamited by enemies of the Catholic Faith, but it was almost immediately rebuilt.
