Sanctuary of the Madonna of the Rosary, Pompeii

4.8
Sanctuary of the Madonna of the Rosary, built between 1876 and 1891, contains a reportedly miraculous painting of Our Lady of the Rosary, which has drawn pilgrims to the site since its installation. Appreciate the marble of the façade, sculpted by Gaetano Chiaromonte, and the frescoes adorning the interior. Take the elevator up the 80 m (260 ft) bell tower to take in the views of Pompeii.
