At the place where the Virgin appeared they built a church around 1566; later on around 1709 they built this Basilica. Due to shifting because of the draining of the underground, this old building is breaking down. Since it became unsafe to receive so many believers there, the people decided to build a new church next to the old one. With a complex construction of racks they have tried to conserve the old Basilica.
The interior of the old Basilica looks really beautiful. Personally I liked the interior of the old Basilica then the interior of the modern one.
