Lonely Planet review for Santuario della Madonna del Rosario
Dominating modern Pompeii's centre, the Santuario della Madonna del Rosario was consecrated in 1891, some 15 years after the miracle that guaranteed its fame. In 1876 a young girl was cured of epilepsy after praying in front of the painting Virgin of the Rosary with Child, above the main altar. News spread rapidly and to this day the painting is the subject of popular devotion.
