FATIMA

au pays des merveilles

After having a picnic on the beach in Peniche, our road trip contined to Fátima, a pilgrimage town where people come to ask for health.  Next to burning the traditional candles, you can buy all kinds of body parts in wax (hands, hearts, breasts, lungs, you name it) and let them melt in the bonfire next to the candles.  We only stopped here for a short time, to take a look at the church and the shops with religious souvenirs, and then we continued our trip.  Next up: Coimbra!
