The Holy House is a little church inside the Basilica, located in the main square of Loreto. It is made from original bricks that - says the legend - were transported by the Angels from Nazareth to Loreto (historians says that the Angel family transported those bricks by boat...a less romantic version but perhaps a more realistic one!).
Whichever story is true, historians have established that those bricks are really of a Jewish origin and were not made locally, therefore they really belonged to Saint Mary's house.
The church and the Holy Shrine have a true magical feel, maybe because of the silence, the candles or so many people gathered in prayer but it is really worth a visit.
Shame about the not so nice "security staff" who are quite rude and tend to go round asking people to be quiet, even where there is no real necessity or when, having young children, it is normal that there's some noise coming from the little ones...
In any case, don't let this put you off and go visit!
