“looks like a concrete traffic cone from the outside but well worth a peek!”

Santuario Madonna delle Lacrime
Reviewed June 5, 2013

Interesting architecture and pensive paintings inside - no admission charge- many school groups around when we visited but not too noisy. Musem reliquory below - small admin charge. You can also see some unusual items left as gifts for Our Lady -body braces, plait etc!! One or two beggars around but not hassled.

My daughter is a converted devout Catholic and went here so I could tell her. For a non-Catholic, difficult to believe in miracles but the building is an impressive architectural building.

I enjoy learning about the history and art of monuments. Santuario Madonna delle Lacrime is nice but not my favorite monument to visit. Worth going in and taking a look though!

Don't be put off by the rather modern aspect of this church. It may not appeal to all from the outside, but it's worth having a look inside - the architects have come up with a very clever, simple and inspiring design, which will interest anyone interested in architecture.

Beautiful sanctuary constructed of concrete in a teardrop design. Impressive architecture which has made excellent use of light and space. Has two levels: the main church and a crypt beneath, both of which are used for services. There is a photographic copy of the Turin Shroud. The crypt beneath also houses some archeological remains.
