Santuario Della Santa Casa, Loreto

In the heart of an intricate basilica and allegedly the birthplace of Mary, Santuario Della Santa Casa features simple brick construction and decorative artwork. You can appreciate the effort involved in moving this structure by sea from Nazareth in Israel. Once here, it was modified into its current form. Examine ancient graffiti carved into the walls by contemporary residents of the Holy Land. Book ahead if you'd like a guided tour.

  • ... The home of the son of man is therefore the Universal House of all adopted children of God. The story of every human being, in a sense, it goes through that House ... This is Loreto and visit the Holy House is the greatest gift that a Christian can receive ...

  • The Basilica of the Holy House is one of the main places of Marian devotion and one of the most important and most visited Marian shrines of the Catholic world. Is located in Loreto in piazza della Madonna. As soon as you arrive you note this imposing church surrounded by a large square. The Gothic-Renaissance style makes this Sanctuary one of the most important monuments in Italy but what is most striking is the great faith that reigns in this place. Inside the Basilica, under the dome, is kept the Holy House of Nazareth, where devotional tradition, the Virgin Mary received the Annunciation. Is really exciting to pray in the Holy House, as it is moving around on the steps of the marble revetment made with your knees by pilgrims. It has essentially a penitential value. Men and women, are proceeding slowly and laboriously knees, lean and collected in deep prayer. Even the most casual visitor, in this view, is still admired. I was enchanted by the deep faith that prevails at this shrine and would recommend anyone to go and visit. A unique experience and unforgettable!

  • Home, I can't help but think back to another House. The domestic dimension of a God who chose the meat and the family in order to save man. After having heard so much about it I'm glad I finally visited.
