The Basilika Wilten is a church of pilgrimage. Already at the time of the Roman Empire there was a venerated image of the Virgin here. It houses the devotion to Our Lady of the Four Columns. The first church on the site was built in the thirteenth century, and was visited by many of pilgrims. When it collapsed, it was rebuilt in the eighteenth century. The new church, which is the one which stands today, is Rococo with twin towers. In the interior pastel colors predominate, and gold and stucco coated in Rococo style.
