Shrine of Our Lady of Pompeii

Shrine of Our Lady of Pompeii Review

Completed in 1923 and built to accommodate the area's growing number of Italian immigrants, this church is the oldest continuously operating Italian-American church in Chicago. Its Romanesque Revival style was popular with the famous church architects Worthman and Steinbach, and its interior is filled with statues and striking stained-glass windows. At times, the church serves as a venue for concerts and theatrical productions.
