    1. I don’t think I know that tradition; what is it about? 🙂 We were in Fátima for such a short time, we only got to wash our hands and faces with the holy water, and walk around and see the tree where the apparition was seen.

      1. People usually ask for a wish, like your son not being ill anymore, and make a promise in exchange. The most common one is going from your house to Fatima walking. That’s why you often see groups of people walking on the side of the roads. Some come from far away and have to walk several days until they reach Fatima! 🙂

        1. Oh, I see! Yes, I think that does sound familiar, and I remember seeing the path in the road where people walk on their knees in their pilgrimage, right? Thanks, though! I’ll remember that for next time! 🙂
