the basilica sits on top of a hill and can be seen from miles away. Mystic atmosphere that calls for deep soul searching. What a pity that at the mass I attended there was no music / choir.

The Sanctuario houses the remains of a house puportedly lived in by Mary in Nazareth. It has been found that it probably was from that area of Israel and was brought back by the last Crusaders. The basilica is beautifully decorated and the remains of the house are encased in a wonderfully sculpted marble surround.

The basilica is stunning from the outside as is the actual Santa Casa and the marble walls that contain it, but the rest of the church was decorated after the unification of Italy following a long period of decline and is a rather hideous example of late 19th century gold plated gothic revival and art of a rather dubious quality....

A real must for visitors to central Italy, especially for Catolics. It is a place of worship as well as a wonderful example of architecture

Beautiful Sanctuary and good prayer time. Only complaint is that the boxes to contribute a donation need to be padded so the dropping coins don't wake up the neighbors!

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
