Very nice Church. I didn't know the importance of this shrine but once there we found a nice priest that told us the history of the founder of the church (that in some way has also been the founder of the little country of Pompei) Bartolo Longo, and of the picture of the Virgin of the Rosary.

The basilica is stunningly beautiful inside, with a myriad of colourful artwork and decoration. Next door is the bell tower - for just €2 you can take the lift up to enjoy 360-degree views of the town, the ruins, Vesuvius and the surrounding countryside.

This church is a must, especially if you know some one whom is very ill - we pray to this madonna for assistance and we find that miracles do happen, this can be viewed by the millions of frames found at the back of the church

I think this may be my favorite church in Italy. The baroque nature of the frescoes in the domes and the elaborate booked marble in the columns are just my cup of tea. The beautiful Madonna icon above the altar is magnificent. It is always a cool and peaceful place to take a moment for contemplation.

We were impressed by its bell tower. The church itself is very beatiful as well.
