Although this is a very important church, for the catholic religion, and a lot of people travel to pray to this black Madona, I found the place almost empty!! The church is impressively decorated.... because at its center, there's Virgin Mary house, brought from Nazaret!!!

This was our second visit to Loreto and the Holy House and it was as beautiful as the first. Wonderful to visit the tiny house in the middle of the Basilica, and prayer to our Mother.

If you are in the area, this is a must to see. Very atmospheric and beautiful on a large scale. Nice shops and bars close by so easy to make a day of it.

An amazing church built around the Holy House of Mary. The art work in the chapels is often unique, including a stain glass window to the saints of the Americas. The marble facade on the holy house has some wonderful detail.

We arrived by car and parked outside of the ZTL and walked to the church. Within the large church, you will find the Holy House of Our Lady. It's actually the walls that enclosed the cave where she grew up. The exterior of the Holy...More

Yes, you can actually enter the Holy House itself, which is a remarkable experience. You can linger and take it in (in silence). There are two exits, one behind the altar and one opposite where you entered. We actually went... More
