The piazza was set up for some event with lots of people in cassocks and nuns pushing elderly people around in wheelchairs so there was lots of bustle and atmosphere. The cathedral itself is one of the better churches we have seen on our travels. Well worth a visit. The town itself looks to be quite busy and touristy in... More

After entering the majestic, and beautifully decorated 15th century basilica, the eye is immediately caught by the extraordinary marble screen commissioned by Pope Julius II, designed by Bramante, and executed by Andrea Sansovino. The screen contains the actual three-walled Holy House which, according to the tradition was brought from Nazareth to Loreto by the Angels the night of December 10,... More

Very nice facade. Let the history of this site take you. So many famous and common people came in this place during the centuries. It can be very busy. Best time to visit is early morning or late afternoon.

If you are in the Marche you cannot miss to visit the pearl of baroque, Loreto, and one of the cardinals of the spiritual centers for the Catholics. Just minutes away from the Lido

The Beautiful Basilica and Sanctuary of Our Lady in Loreto is well worth a visit. Great hilltop vista and full of rich history. Even if you are not a Christian, the peace of this place is clear. If you're in the area do call in. Really worth it.

We went for a quick visit and was pleasantly surprised! The church alone is huge and the surrounding city is charmingly build in the same style, with small cafe's and shops. You can get an English bronchure for 1 € and they have guided tours as well. I would definitely recommend a visit and might come back myself for a... More

Worth a visit if you are interested in architecture and culture. I was particularly interested in the illumination both internal and external. Loreto is fully geared up for pilgrims too.

This is supposedly the most important pilgrimage church in Italy. The added feature is the house of the Virgin Mary carried by the angels from the middle East which lies in the middle of the sanctuary.
