Sanctuary Of The Madonna Of The Rosary Reviews & Ratings
Church with lovely frescoes and baroque style architecture. We visited in the morning and were a little short of time, so returned in the afternoon after a day in 90°+ heat. Although entry in the morning was no problem, my fiancee was denied entry by a nice lady at the entrance. Her above the knee (but thoroughly decent) shorts were too short. I missed the part in the Bible about that, although did note the bank provided ATM in the church. So be warned, a money lender is welcome, but not a woman dressed in shorts...
A really beautiful cathedral in Pompei. The surrounding area is really chilled and you can just relax outside, admiring the church, whilst enjoying an ice cream from one of the many surrounding gelaterias and sat by the coo6king fountain.
The architecture is magnificent. Truly a Saint Place where you can find the quite and maybe even the asnwer to some questions. People are very respectful, even the tourists. Once inside, a warm and peaceful feeling is feeling all over.
Very picturesque from outside. Very easy to find and has friendly staff. It doesn't have a parking of its own but outside at the side of the road you can park for a cheap price. Although it's Pompeii, meaning at peak times, finding a spot to shove your car in, is difficult
Wonderful Church. Ceilings are incredibly beautiful. Don’t miss it when in Pompei. Wont take more than 10-15 minutes.
