Modonna del Sasso

Recommended
This very popular sanctuary is perched atop a wooded spur. On 15 August 1480, the Virgin Mary appeared here to a hermit. A chapel was built in her name, marking the origin of the church. Several chapels preceded the church of the Anunciation, the entrance of which is marked by a gallery of arcades decorated with paintings.
