This national shrine is the site where three young peasant shepherds spied a "lady brighter than the sun," which was, many believe, the first of six apparitions of the Virgin Mary in this region of Portugal.

....This was one of my favorite things to do in Portugal. Watching "believers' walk on their knees to the shrine, hear the story and watch the rosary and mass was very moving to me- even as a non-Christian

This is a very impressive place to visit. We enjoyed the atmosphere...it wasn't crowded in November when we were there. The candlelight procession is quite moving.

Very spiritual experience. Enjoyed all the celebrations...Mass, candlelit procession, rosary; quite small crowds due to time of year made everything very accessible. Would certainly recommend

Although I don’t connect usually, this is a special place. The many different churches are for sure architecturally interesting and the environment is one of faith and belief. Beautiful experience.

I don't know. I would just Google the question and you will find the answer. It's worth a visit anytime of the year. Also visit Coimbra Portugal if you have a chance.
