"What an amazing place! We visited it in May 2012 on a 5 week motorhome tour from UK to Sorento and back and, having rated the east coast higher than the west, rated Loreto and it’s Basilica as the best on the eastern side (we were avoiding city attractions).
We are not religious, but really appr..."eciated the architecture, art, the beautiful cleanliness and serenity, not to mention the stunning views to the coast and mountains. Mary’s house, transported from Israel centuries ago, encased in a beautifully decorated marble screen, around which the huge church was built, makes the hilltop place very special indeed. I am in no doubt that at peak times it gets packed, but in May, the piazza and church were relatively quiet, there was easy (even for a motorhome), reasonably priced parking outside the basilica walls.

"The most wonderful experience I have ever had in my whole life! ( I did not have any idea what to expect and what was inside)
From the moment I walked into the Basilica I could feel that it was a Holy place! I had goosebumps and inside the church the presence of the Holy Father very prominent.
U..."nknown to many people this is "the shrine of the Holy House"
Three walls are the original walls of the house ( saved and shipped across the sea by christians) where Mary the mother of Jesus lived as a child and were given the wonderful news by Gabriel.
