Holy Places Visited
- Basilica of Maria Taferl
Stayed in Maria Taferl
I visited the impressive Basilica, admiring it’s ornate baroque interior and frescoed ceiling.
I also visited it’s south-western tower, which is decorated with hundreds of pictures of Mary and Jesus.
The church dates back to the 17th Century and has been a place of pilgrimage since that time. It was designated as a Basilica Minor in 1947.
