Mary's Trsat is a special historic, religious, cultural and building complex consisting of the Shrine of Our Lady of Trsat and the Franciscan Monastery, the residence of the guardians of the Shrine.
The centre of this complex is without any doubt the Shrine of Our Lady of Trsat, imbuing Mary's Trsat with a special force and attraction, both in the past and today. This is a family shrine and its origins are connected with the tradition that speaks of the small House in which Mary was born being transfered by angels to Trsat (1291-1294) before the arrival in Loreto, Italy. Therefore, Trsat is often referred to as the Croation Nazareth.
