Since the first apparitions in 1917, millions of devotees from around the world converge each year to honor the Virgin. They celebrate the story of the three shepherd children to whom the Virgin appeared in 1917 to reveal "three mysteries of Fatima." This became a major lure to attract the faithful to the shrine . Today, the flow of participants has increased so much that the sanctuary has evolved into a large complex of several buildings and spaces for prayer.
Fatima has added a boost tourism to the area, calling not just pilgrims, but more traditional tourists, and explorers. In 2011 some 3.5 million people (117,000 more than last year) attended the official Masses and 2.93 million people (192,000 more than last year) attending other celebrations in the Sanctuary.
Foreigners who made a pilgrimage to Fatima in 2011 were led by the Spanish, followed by Italians and Poles. Within the top 10 countries were pilgrims from more distant nations such as the U.S., Brazil, Ukraine, Germany, Ireland, Philippines and France.
