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.

Truly amazing experience, very moving, even for me who is not a christian. Anyway, as with many such things, it is kind of cool to see "the" Loreta.

I'm absolutely not religious in any way myself, but I really appreciated it from an aesthetic point of view; it seems to be the product of the work of a lot of different artists and architects. I visited shortly after Christmas when there was quite a lot of activity going on inside with lots of praying, a baby getting baptised,... More

This place was great, even before I understood the significance (more on this later). It's a large church on a great piazza with street chalk art. There are 'guards' at the main door to make sure you cover your shoulders and remove your hats. There was mass going on, yet tourists were still allowed to enter. I noticed people giving... More
