Co. Mayo, Ireland
The history of the Knock Basilica is rich and fascinating, it began on August 21, 1879 when in the village of Knock in Co. Mayo, 15 people from the village witnessed an apparition of Our Lady, St. Joseph and St. John the Redeveloper.
Knock Basilica is a Roman Catholic Church located in the small town of Knock in County Mayo in the Western Region of Ireland and more than 1.5 million pilgrims visit the Knock Basilica annually.
Today Knock Basilica has undergone extensive and elegant renovation which includes a complete internal adjustment, some structural adjustments, a new sacristy and sacramental chapel, installation of new bathrooms and the redesign of the lobby.
LSI Stone played a major role in this project, providing white marble sivec to the focal point of the Basilica, the shining shrine. Sivec marble is original from Macedon and is quite famous due to its white and immaculate features. The final result could not be better, the immaculate colors of the Sivec marble and the quality in the finishes of LSI Stone have done an excellent job and it is a great honor for LSI Stone to have their products in such a sacred place and of such importance for their inhabitant and millions of visitors annually received by the Knock Basilica.
