Due to the tall towers of the church, the well known Marian pilgrimage place, Maria Radna is easily visible from the main road going to Arad.
The church is built on a hill with a small park at its base.
One the most important elements of the church's interior is the main altar, made of Carrara marble.
The altar was installed in 1895 with the occasion of the anniversary two centuries from the first miracle in Maria Radna and replaced the older one made of wood.
Behind the altar is a huge painting of I. Roskovics from 1891.
The first brick to the foundation of the current church was put in 1756 and in 1767 the church was blessed and the famous miraculous icon was moved inside.
The church has a length of 60m, a width of 20m and an interior height of 21m.
The works have been finished only in 1820 and the church was consecrated by the Archbishop-price, primate of Hungary, Alexander Rudnay.
The name of the archbishop, Rudnay, meant "of Radna" and he expressively requested in his will that after his death his heart to be put near the icon of the Holy Virgin Mary in Radna.
