MADONNA DELLA CORONA

The Sanctuary of Madonna della Corona (Our Lady of the Crown) is halfway down on the vertical rock face of Mount Baldo.

The sanctuary is located in Spiazzi in one of the most picturesque locations in northern Italy. It rises clinging on the rock of the mountains that surround it, at 774 meters above sea level, overlooking the valley of the Adige river.

According to tradition, in 1522 an Image of Our Lady, which had disappeared in Rhodes during the Turkish conquest, appeared on these mountains and from the 24th of June that year on, people started to venerate the statue of Our Lady of Sorrows, which had been carved out and given to the hermits by Ludovico from Castelbarco. The name of the Sanctuary was inspired by the mountains surrounding it like a "crown".
