LocationWerl, Germany

The Basilica of the Visitation of Our Lady also called Werl Basilica is a Catholic church located in Werl, Germany which was declared a minor basilica in 1953. It is dedicated to the Visitation of Mary.

The church was built in 1904-1906 according to the plans of the chief architect of the diocese of Münster, Wilhelm-Sunder Plaßmann in Neo-Romantic style. The temple houses the pious statue of the Virgin of Werle, also called afflictorum Consolatrix, dating from the twelfth century.

The consecration of the church was carried out on May 24, 1911 by the bishop of Paderborn, Monsignor Schulte. Just next to the basilica is the pilgrimage church, built by the Capuchin convent of Werle in the late 18th century that had become too small for pilgrimages.
