  • By its 618 meters above sea level, the sanctuary offers views of Cividale and Julian prealps; you reach the piazzetta before the sanctuary from the parking lot on foot for a short flight of steps or a short side street. Born circa 5th century Roman military protection against the Ottoman Empire, makes you marvel at the small crypt with votive offerings and the statue of the Archangel Michael that crushes under his foot the Devil (actually looks like a bit of a dragon and a bit of a Hong trello!). Since 1913, after several reconstructions it was entrusted with the care of the Capuchin Friars. Climbed to the 1 St floor, painted limestone statue of the Madonna with the child in your arms, from the mid-1400 welcomes pilgrims inspiring a desire for tranquility and peace. The 8 September the faithful climb to the shrine to pray for his protection against earthquakes remembering that fortissimo of 1976; But even to touch the rock that, as legend goes, seems to have therapeutic and healing powers as Mary leaned a foot during running that engaged with the devil to come before him to Castelmonte. Calmly you can admire frescoes both in the crypt is in the upper Church. In a small shop sells gift items and in the Casa del Pellegrino you can stop and have lunch.
