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 witnessed an apparition of Virgin Mary, St. Joseph and St. John the Redeveloper.
Knock Basilica is a 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 an 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 showed an excellent job on the part of LSI Stone. It is with great honor that LSI Stone was responsible for the suplly to such a sacred place for their inhabitants and the million of visitors that the Basilica receive annually.
