The Santuario is amazing with its Dome, frescoes, carvings, paintings and marble. You mustn't miss visiting the Holy House of the black Madonna which is inside the Santuario. Even if you are not religious this place makes you feel quite humble. Lots of people stop inside to pray to the Madonna. The story says that this Holy house was transported... More

Definitely is enough interesting to drop by from the motorway which is a couple a minutes away. I went there early in the morning and it was perfect.

We drove from Osimo to visit the village of Loreto, parked the car and walked to the courtyard of this church without knowing anything about it. It is beautiful and so richly decorated. The main attraction of Loreto is the Holy house within the Church and is a popular pilgrimage site of Catholics. It is said tht this is the... More

Wonderful place to visit. Inside the huge Basilica which actually is a Basilica and a fort, lies the house where the Virgin Mary lived with St. Joseph and Jesus.

I came there during the mass, it was impressive, you can also get sin release there. Lots of sick people come there to pray for blessing and health. So it's a piligrim place for Italians. Santa Maria's home is there and the "Black Maria" at Maria's home . Probably the Temple "Warriors" took it there from Palestine at 1200 ac.... More

Impressive basilique and square. The black madonna cannot be photographed but can be visited free. Visitors should be dressed decently but further no limitations. The basilique and sacristy are rich decorated with paintings and woodcarvings. Parking is easy and the village lies beautiful on a hilltop with spectacular view on the surroundings.

Impresseive pelgrim town below Ancona. Beautifull square and basilique. Most impressive was the chapel in the middle of the Basilique which supposedly is made out of the original stones of the birth house of the Virgin Mary

We visited a fantastic place today. Virgin Mary's house from Palestine, moved to Marches 1000 years ago. Very interesting, a big and fantastic Basilica and inside Virgin Mary's house. It felt big and sacred.

This basilica is hypnotic - so much to see and an atmosphere you can feel. A must every day! We have been to Loreto many times and just can't keep away from this magnificent building.
