This immense painting welcomed all pilgrims coming to the Sanctuary of Loreto in the sixteenth century.

It depicts St. Christopher, patron of pilgrims. It also shows Rocco and Sebastian, protecting the village from the plague.

'He welcomed the pilgrims who had finally reached the goal after a dangerous journey. They avoided disease and thieves.�

The exhibition 'Lorenzo Lotto and Artistic Treasures of Loreto' brings together work from Italian artists that has been gifted to Loreto.

There are the magnificent works of Lorenzo Lotto, but the exhibit also includes great artists like Guido Reni, Annibale Carracci, Andrea Sacchi and Filippo Bellini.

Interestingly, several of them creatively illustrated the unique history of this popular destination for pilgrims.

The exhibition shows that beyond popular devotion, Our Lady of Loreto also inspired high quality masterpieces.
