It is said that in the Middle Ages, the locals used to shelter in this cave to escape the rampage between the guelphs and the ghibellines bringing with them a small wooden statue of the Virgin Mary that was left behind. Time after a deaf-mute girl shepherding the area, found this statue and miraculously got back her voice and hearing, since then started the worship and pilgrimage to this cave. Interesting religious sanctuary/church with a puddle and water that springs from the mountain walls. Nearby there are clean toilets, a shop and a restaurant where can enjoy nice valley views (only from the terrace but be there before 12:00 to get the best tables!) Plenty of carpark but need to walk uphill, easy if bringing someone handicap. Be sure to wear comfy and anti-slip shoes! P.S. Opens after Easter and closes during the wintertime.

I was looking for a place where we can spend some quiet time and at the sametime will interest my kids. Saw this by accident through a friend and decided to take the trip which wasn’t long, in an hour and 15 minites we were there from Milan, the church /sanctuary was built inside a cave, the surroundings are breathtaking and there are accessible clean restrooms. You can also make a way of the cross . Highly recommended , only cons i have is the zigzag road.

We were interested to visit the sanctuary and took the location information on the tripadvisor site for granted. Totally wrong!!! The true location is about 1 hour drive from what is indicated. So we missed it completely, since it is quite a challenging drive to get to the location that is indicated here.
