A Pilgrimage to Fatima
The Hamlet of Aljustrel
Close to the town of Fatima lies the tiny hamlet of Aljustrel, the home of the three child seers and their families.
The home of Jacinta and Francisco Marto. It was here that Our Lady appeared four times, three times to Jacinta and once to her and Francisco.
|The home of Sister Lucia dos Santos, the last living seer of Fatima. She was born here, the last child in a family of seven, on March 22, 1907. It was here that the first interrogations of the shepherd children took place.|
|Interior views of Jacinta and Francisco's bedrooms. It was in the little room below that Francisco died on April 4, 1919.|
|The well where the Angel Guardian of Portugal spoke to the children for the second time:|
"Pray, pray very much! The Holy Hearts of Jesus and Mary have designs of mercy on you. Offer prayers and sacrifices constantly to the Most High."
