Photographer's Note

The Shrine area or Sanctuary was the subject of my three previous posts, these are the first pictures of places outside the Shrine area, but still related to the apparitions of the Our Lady of the Rosary 100 years ago in Fatima. The main picture here shows the seconds of 14 similar stations along a 3 km long trail called the Way of the Cross. The stations are places along the trail where 3 little shepherds, Lucia, Francisco and Jacinta, herded sheep to pasture, the place where the Shrine is today. Inside the little chapels there is a bass-relief sculptures depicting Jesus at different points on his way to the Mount Calvary, where he was crucified. This station is called Jesus Receive the Cross. At the starting point of the trail there is sculpture depicting the little shepherds. A picture of this sculpture is shown in the Workshop. Another picture in the Workshop shows a sculpture of Our Lady, it is between the eights and ninth stations at a place called Valinhos. The trail ends at the Chapel of St. Stephen (Hungarian Calvary), this will be show on my next post.
