A giant 55-foot statue of Our Lady of Loreto is in the works in the coastal city of Primošten, Croatia, which will be known as one of the largest Marian sites in the world when it is completed.
"This project is unique in Croatia and beyond," stated the Municipality of Primošten, according to Total Croatia News.
"It has been an object of considerable interest and acclaim, and a blessing has been given by the Holy See and Pope Francis," they continued.
The larger-than-life statue of Our Lady of Loreto is being constructed along the coastline of Primošten, a hill-city about 20 miles south of Šibenik. Primošten is known for its vineyards and beaches, and will now also be marked as the site of one of the biggest Marian statues in the world.
