Our Lady of Fátima or Nossa Senhora de Fátima is a Roman Catholic title of the Blessed Virgin Mary based on apparitions reported to be experienced by three shepherd children in Fátima on May 13, 1917. After a canonical inquiry, the visions of Fátima were officially declared "worthy of belief" in October 1930 by the Bishop of Leiria-Fátima. Pope Pius XII granted a Canonical Coronation to the venerated image at the Chapel of the Apparitions. Every year thousands of pilgrims from all over the world gather in Fatima for Marian veneration. Pilgrims are coming during the year but the main celebrations are on May 13 and October 13.
