  • Very exotic place. Do yourself a favour and visit it.
  • Unique place, out of time. I'd be enchanted hours to see the wooden statues of the graces received. Horrible and terrible some stunning and exquisite, other, seem to tell terrible facts of life: from simply escaped war, survived the torture, the awakened from death ... These testimonials to give hope to all: If even the worst were rescued from balordissime situation, why shouldn't I be saved too. And it is precisely this Act of faith the true miracle. In a sober and elegant, the edges of the lagoni di Mantova. Inevitable

  • A few kilometres from Mantua, this shrine is really very special. Used for some scenes of the twentieth century by Bertolucci, presenting a wooden structure of both walls with 53 statues representing votive offerings for favors received. The wooden walls are decorated with small corpora rating shaped like a hand, heart, eye, etc. especially a stuffed crocodile hanging from the ceiling (also this symbol of grace received)

  • The Interior of the sanctuary is magnificent. Of the approximately 200 statues-mâché dummies and life-size, it remained only forty. They are unique in their kind. Their clothes and armor of 1400. Question of votive offerings to the grace received like this: out of FREE and loose with SERIOUS CLASSIC ROCK PIT ESTO, which was HANGING FROM HIS NECK, BECAUSE I was by YOUR ARMS upheld.

  • Splendid as singular Gothic pilgrimage church. Inside, decorated in its entirety from frescoes, statues and stuccoes, there are the many votive figures (some rather macabre) made of papier-mâché and attributed to brother Francis from Acquanegra. Another interesting detail is the presence of a stuffed crocodile hanging from the ceiling.
