Holy Places Visited

  • Basilica of Maria Taferl

Distance Travelled

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.
