From the road towards this town, we can see the dome of the Basilica and its church-tower. Having reached the church we can see its magnificent ramparts of the 16th-century. Loreto is one of the capital cities of faith in the world. According to a religious tradition (never confirmed by history), Christ's native home was transported here by some angels. It originally was in Nazareth, then, in 1291, the angels transported it to Istria and, a few years later, after a series of moves, to Loreto.

To see: Sanctuary of the “Santa Casa”, Apostolic Museum with paintings of "Lotto"
