On May 12 and 13 and on October 12 and 13, thousands of pilgrims come here to remember that Mary appeared to three shepherd children. On May 13, 1917 the shepherd children saw a shining female figure in the stone oak. She told them in the coming months to return on the same day. On October 13 the shepherd children came along with 70,000 pilgrims at the oak. Only Lucia, one of the shepherd children, learned the secret of Fatima that was discussed at the last apparition. The first part was a vision of hell, the second one was of a war worse than the First World War, the third was a vision of the murder of a pope. The latter was only revealed in the New Millennium by Pope John Paul II who was the victim of an assassination attempt in 1981.
