This is a very special place that you must visit if in Pompeii. People go here from all over the world to pray for someone who needs it. It will always have special meaning to me. I hope that when you visit you will feel the same.

We were impressed by its bell tower. The church itself is very beatiful as well.

How can you review a church? Well, it's not easy, but let me give it a go.

This beautiful old church stands in a main plaza, near one of the Pompeii train stations. Its inviting facade faces a beautiful, park-like setting where people gather to talk and just enjoy the day. Walking into the church is like walking into the past. It is an incredibly beautiful example of stone masonry and frescoes. The main altar is amazingly beautiful. The image of the Blessed Virgin is exceptionally lovely. The brilliant stars in her halo are beautiful and lend to the trancendant image. We very much enjoyed looking at the architecture, sculpture and frescoes.

We were fortunate enough to be there when the sisters were doing a rosary. Neither Mom nor I are Catholic, but we enjoyed the beauty of the service. I understand Latin, having taken it in college, so it was enjoyable to me to hear the old language. Mom just enjoyed the beauty of the service. The brothers and sisters working there were friendly and kind.

If you are into beautiful architecture or want to attend a church service while visiting Pompeii, please stop by this beautiful sanctuary.
