Dom Goncalo Hotel & Spa - Fatima
Pilgrims and holidaymakers alike will find a warm welcome awaiting them at this affordable spa hotel near the Sanctuary of Fátima. The Dom Gonçalo Hotel & Spa is just 440 yards (402 meters) from the Shrine where the Marian apparitions of 1917 were reported to have taken place. Today thousands of people visit the Basilica of Our Lady of the Rosary, a beautiful neoclassical style church with a 65-meter (213 ft) high central tower overlooking the square below. On May 13 and October 13 of each year, the original dates of the apparitions, the streets leading to the town and up to the shrine are packed with pilgrims and visitors.
