The baroque sanctuary of Santa Maria dell'Aiuto contains a real surprise: a faithful reproduction of the Holy House of Loreto.
It is a beautiful work done in the eighteenth century by the initiative of Giuseppe Lauria, then canon of the Cathedral, who offered it as a sign of devotion to Our Lady.
The external walls are adorned, as in the original, with marble sculptures made by the sculptor Michele Orlando; the interior faithfully reproduces the structure of the Holy House, with also the "window of the Angel", from which Our Lady would have received the announcement.
