The total length of the stairway is 700 meters consisting of 150 arches grouped in ten.
The Basilica has three identical facades, richly decorated by Orazio Marinali.

Probably the most beautiful facade of the Santuario.
The small and very beautiful Gothic Church on the western side of the Santuario was built in 1428.

To the right of the altar is the famous fresco "La Pieta" by Bartolomeo Montagna, do not miss to see it.
The original architecture of the Cloister remains intact.
