  • I remained in the heart this shrine for the suggestion and the spirituality that has been able to send me through the frescoes which encloses, a veritable prayer. I don't know how much of this building has spared the earthquake, but I really hope that Passatora icon can still speak to the hearts of those who visit. It is also very nice, the place where the church stands, in the Woods, a place of serenity that should go back to being that.

  • The Marian Sanctuary of Farhan is located east of Amatrice in the homonymous village and is entitled to Santa Maria delle Grazie known as Passatora Icon. The Church was built during the mid-14th century, around a shrine to shrine that encloses the image of the Virgin known since the 13th century. The Interior is richly frescoed, most of the works are by the painter amatriciano Dionisio Cappelli. On all stands out distinctly the enthroned Madonna and child, in the Act of holding the town of Amatrice in miniature. Interesting also the other fresco that adorns the right pillar and represents the Madonna and child enthroned with angels and Saint Anthony and Saint Lucia, by the same author, known as the master of the Madonna della Misericordia. Other Holy scenes are represented under the Arch of the apse and the side walls. The wayside shrine to gable is kept the icon that gives its name to the sanctuary.
