  • This sanctuary very well highlighted on the heights of the village offers spectacular views. In the 16th century, the small village of Fiorano was burned and destroyed by Spanish soldiers. Everything was consumed except for an image of the Madonna, painted by an unknown artist on the Arch of the entrance portal. Other miracles were attributed to our Lady as for example the fact that the plague spared the small village while she was ravaging the region. This is why, the Duke Francesco d'Este, in 1634, was built on the heights of the village, this sanctuary inside which will be kept the image of the Madonna and child. In 1866, refurbishment of the dome are listed and the paintings are renewed. In 1889, the new marble façade is opened and the second tower of the shrine is erected. In 1989, Jean-Paul II give the building the status of minor Basilica.

  • On a hill that overlooks the city, the place where once stood the castle of Fiorano, this sanctuary dedicated to the Madonna of the Castle. The shrine was built by the inhabitants of Fiorano as a sign of gratitude towards the Madonna that had preserved the town from the plague of 1630 (the Betrothed). The Duke of Modena passed the initiative, so as to give to fioranesi the ruins of the castle that still stood on the top of the Hill. The building, designed by Avanzini (same architect to whom we owe the Ducal Palace of Modena), was begun in 1634, but was completed only after many years. The current façade of the sanctuary is Baroque and the Interior, a Greek cross, surmounted by a high dome. The Interior is richly decorated and, among other works of art, there is the miraculous image of our Lady of the Castle. From the outside of the building offers a glance on the plain below.
