In 1928, the first stone of Fátima Basilica was thrown, a project conceived by Dutch architect G. Van Kriecken. The basilica would have 15 altars dedicated to 15 mysteries of the rosary. This Neobaroque temple became sacred in 1953, presenting a 65m bell tower and a carillon with 62 bells. In the outside, we can also see an image of the Immaculate Heart of Mary, while in the inside the main altar with a painting depicting the message of Our lady to the three sheperds deserves a special attention. It is also worth highlighting an Italian-made organ dating back to 1952 with 152 registers and 12.000 pipes, approximately. The sheperds are buried in the main chapel: Francisco, Jacinta Marto and Lúcia.
