The church was partially under renovation, and the cover was imaginative, showing the originaly view of the church.
The inner building is a bit dark -for those who are used to big open spaces in churches- but this is a church dating back from Roman style, rebuilt severaly times.
Inside there is the famous Madonna paiting, the frescos, etc
Look for the actual Roman tombstone pieces from the outside, on the (Northern?) wall!

The Church of the Assumption of Our Lady in Gyro was bestowed the status of a Minor Basilica in 1997 by Pope John Paul II. The original Romanesque church built in the 11 th century was destroyed during Turkish occupations. Rebuilt in the early Baroque style during the 13th to 15th centuries after the Turkish invasions, the tower of the basilica was not completed until 1680. The highly decorated interior with magnificent ceiling and wall frescos was finished in 1780. The pulpit is a sculptural masterpiece.
On the northern aisle is a famous painting of Mary and the infant Jesus which was said to cry tears of blood on St. Patrick's Day, March 17, 1697.
