As every church or monument in Italy, the Sanctuary of the Holy House with Madonna di Loreto is breathtaking inside – sculptures, frescoes and the Madonna. Unfortunately, photos are not allowed. It is in Marche region and it is the most visited church of this kind, after the one in Assisi. The Italians told me that there is a pilgrimage... More

Sometimes reality (and history) is more adventurous than action movies, and this is certainly the case for the Sanctuary of the Holy House of Loreto. During the crusades the aristocratic Angeli family, which then reigned the kingdom of Epirus, somehow got hold of the three walls of the Holy House where Our Lady Mary was born, grew up and received...

Even when you just entered in the plaza in front it of it, you will have a superb view. Entering is something magic. it's decoration is magnificent and the history of it is going to capture you, even if you are not following the catholic religion 100%. It's a must view if you are catholir and/or visiting the region called... More

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

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.
