Basilika von Mariatrost

Church Graz, Austria

Place of pilgrimage Basilika von Mariatrost

The minor basilica of Maria Consolatrice in the Mariatrost district of Graz on the top of the Purberg hill is one of the main Marian shrines of the Styrian Land frequented by pilgrims from all over Europe. The statue of Mary of Graces kept in the heart of the baroque church is the object of intense devotion and the faithful who have vowed an act of penance climb the 216 steps leading to the square of the basilica. Inside, the attention is paid to the splendid frescoes and the suggestive pulpit.
