Tall Cross

Venerated at Cova da Iria from October 13, 1951 (conclusion of the Holy year) up to February 16, 2004, when it was removed to give room for the construction of the new Church, it was later on donated to the Shrine of Christ-King, on February 13, 2007, and inaugurated on May 17 of that same year, after being installed in front of the Monument.

With its presence is thus geminated the message of peace of these two shrines and thus come true the words uttered by the late Manuel Gonçalves Cardinal Cerejeira, on the day of inauguration of this Monument, in front of the Statue of Our Lady of Fatima, brought expressly from the Little Chapel of Apparitions:

"…The Shrine of Christ-King rises up as a complement of Your Shrine of Cova da Iria…"
