If you are in Pistoia this is worth a visit. The entrance looks very modest but inside it is a bit like the Medici chapel in Florence. It is a large, octagonal basilica-the third largest in the world according to our guide at the cathedral tour. There are the usual huge paintings and the ornate decorations you expect in a Catholic chapel and it is all very impressive. The madonna herself is the charming centrepiece of the basilica. I would allow 20 minutes for the visit.
