Before proceeding to my trip with the Trenino Rosso di Bernina,I had the chance to pass by at Santuario della Beata Vergine di Tirano.It stand tall outside where people gather outside when they have celebration & the interior of the church are just so neatly place with the colored glasses.Upon entering you will be in awe how it was done.It is not as massive as a dome but looking at it,you will know how many years the church was built but still it's beauty still shines.

The Basillica, built where the Virgin was seen by a local person, is a palpably holy place. At 6 pm on a Tuesday, a large group of people were praying the rosary. It was very inspirational and beautiful.

It is easy to zip in to this church for a few minutes and enjoy the serenity. Be sure to notice the carved front to the organ - very alpine design. Take a little time to check out the gift shops around the church, they have some lovely and unusual items.

If you are in Tirano, do not miss visiting this 514 year old church. It is not just another European church. Inside blew us away. It is truly amazing and nothing like many of the the over the top ornateness of other churches.

Inside has the most amazing carved timber work encompassing the organ. Also are the beautiful frescoes, paintings and decorations.

The chapel of the Apparition inside the church is also the focus for many visitors.

The church is easily accessible via the free and very regular shuttle bus service which starts at the Information centre at the railway station.

After touring to many churches in our 5 weeks in Italy, this was an impromptu stop and an excellent example of what is not planned could be the best stop ever.

This was impromptu, the locals were having a special function of recognizing the elders in the community. We visited with one of the elders that was recognized and his sister. What wonderful people that live here.

The other reviews tell the story. I can add only that if you have any way to to spend a few hours in Tirano, make your way here. The interior is simply stunning in so many ways; there is no other way to put it, yet on a busy summer day, we had the Santuario almost to ourselves. I suppose that is nice in one way, but it's a shame in another way that so few people who pass through Tirano experience the beauty within.

One important note about hours: outside of June through September and certain days in May, the Santuario is usually closed from 12:15 to 2:30 pm. If you work your way around the web site (in our case with the help of Google Translate), it spells out quite clearly which days they are open those hours.

This is a memorable church and memorable experience. Find a way if you can to not be among the throngs of people passing through Tirano each day who never have the incredible fortune to see it.

- Tirano may be little out of the way, but the sanctuary is no doubt worth a visit when travelling by car from Switzerland (Sankt Moritz) or on the Bernina Express.
- The inside is lavishly decorated with the usual good taste Italians usually display.

The whole roof is ornately decorated. There is also a massive wooden organ. This is also a historic place as supposedly the was an apparition of the virgin here in 1504.

This is a beautiful church, also known as the Basilica Madonna di Tirano. The artistry is amazing, especially the altar and the organ.
