I visit here at least once a year. It's lovely to have a walk around, very peaceful and lots to look at. The views from up here are amazing, on a clear day you can see for miles.

A registered pilgrimage site of the Vatican. In the treasury of the monastir you can find ornaments and jewels of the madonna di Montevergine resulting from the donations made over the centuries by the pilgrims who arrived at the shrine. On the route up to the hill in the closest village every autumn there is a castan festival.

The sanctuary is an important piece of holy history. The black virgin is the symbol of the church that also hosts a famous and interesting "presepio" museum. I suggest to visit the ex-voto exhibition which documents centuries of local religious history. The view from the sanctuary is breathtaking. Also, the sanctuary is a good starting point for nice mountain walks

Beautiful sanctuary with a wonderful "Nativity Scene" collection from around the world and a nice museum. A registered pilgrimage site with the Vatican and historically important. Near the village of Mercogliano which has a tram that can be taken up the mountain or a 20 minute drive by car. Area has nice restaurants characteristic of the local area, highly recommended. I personally recommend "I Santi" in Mercogliano or "Il Volpe" in Ospedoletto (spellcheck). I don't think you will be disappointed. Nice wine in the area, and the house wines are deliciously cheap too. About a 45 minute drive to the area from Naples, Italy. Public transportation to the area is possible, but challenging: bus stop to Avellino from Piazza Garibaldi by main train station downtown Naples or outside walk to main road out of the Capodichino airport to Avellino (Uscito Ovest), then local bus to Mercogliano. A day trip to see the area nicely. Cool in the summer.
