With its neoclassical stone facade that culminates with the statue of Vergine del Santo Rosario (carved in single block of Carrara marble) and heavily decorated with golden mosaics and bright colors paintings, this is the most important attraction of "The new Pompeii".

The "Santuario" of Pompei definitely worths visiting. It is a large and monumental church in the center of Modern Pompei (yes, don't be surprise, Pompei is not only about ruins!) which has an important icon inside - Madonna di Pompei. You can also take an elevater to get up the tower of Cathedral and enjoy a beautiful panorama 360 degrees... More

The new city of Pompeii was as enjoyable to me as the old, with the Basilica at the center.

We just happened to catch a children's chorus singing in the sanctuary, so our experiences was not the normal one, but very enjoyable. The grounds were beautiful as was the neighboring plaza.

This church can be seen as you exit the train station in the distance. Once inside you are immediately struck by the beautiful sculptures and murals above you. The art work is awe inspiring as your gaze is directed upward just as it is in the Vatican and St Peter's. For a little church in a little town, this one... More
