Olá, sejam bem-vindos ao grupo Fátima! Este grupo é bilingue!


Hello and welcome to Fátima group! This group is bilingual!


Fátima é uma freguesia portuguesa do concelho de Ourém, com 71,29 km² de área e 10 302 habitantes (2001). Densidade: 144,5 hab/km². Tornou-se mundialmente conhecida pelas aparições marianas aos três pastorinhos (Lúcia, Francisco Marto e Jacinta Marto) que aí tiveram lugar entre 13 de Maio e 13 de Outubro de 1917, no lugar da Cova da Iria. A construção do Santuário de Fátima trouxe desenvolvimento ao local, logrando ser elevada a cidade em 12 de Julho de 1997.


The name of the city (formerly a small village) comes from the Arabic name Fatima, and legend says it derives from a local Moorish princess named Fatima who, following her capture by Christian forces during the Islamic occupation of Portuguese territory, was betrothed to Gonçalo Hermigues, Count of Ourém, converted to Catholicism, and was baptised before marrying the Count in 1158. Her baptismal name was Oureana. Fátima's claim to fame is the shrine called the Sanctuary of Fátima, built to commemorate the events of 1917 when three peasant children claimed to have seen the "Virgin of the Rosary", Our Lady of Fatima. The children actually experienced the apparitions in a pasture called the Cova da Iria near the village of Aljustrel, about a mile from Fátima. Fátima now attracts hosts of believers from far and wide, particularly on the pilgrimage days, and the shrine has been developed on a correspondingly large scale. The large torch-light processions in the evening are particularly impressive.
