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.

Santuario Della Santa Casa Reviews
SUPERB, I just want to came back and visit it again, literally astonishing. i don't know what say more, TAdv force me to write 100 words. more »
The famous biblical house of Mary is enshrined within a marble building inside the church. There is also a saints alter and crown and t he Black Madonna. more »
They have ramps for us who are handicapped, but plan on not having to use a restroom. They don't have handicap bathrooms anywhere, not even in any of the restaurants. The church is very beautiful, peaceful and moving. In case you're wondering (no real English translation) black Madonna refers to the tan Mary got, not that she is of African descent. I was confused about that for a while.
I’ve been twice now with my kids. It’s worth a visit if you’re in the area. It also has lovely views - being atop a hill. However, the little shops were very touristy and weren’t very interesting.
