  • My family originate and still reside in Foggia and the surrounding area. I go there almost every year for the last 40 years. One place I go to is this gem of peace and tranquility. If your religious d...  more »
  • This place of faith comes from a series of events initiated the last Saturday of April in the year 1001 when in the woods outside the city of Foggia, on an oak tree appeared, to a Hunter, the Blessed Virgin Mary Enthroned that pointed to where the statue had to be in worship in a church to be built on the site of the apparition. The legend tells that the count of Ariano Irpino, during a hunting trip in the middle of the night is awakened by suio servants and invited to flee, frightened by strange gleams. The count rises, but wants to make of the strange phenomenon and finds out that it was a fire, but a strange light, avvicindandosi sees a beautiful lady who tells him not to worry because she is the mother of God and the points on an oak statue of Madonna from the Brown face and calls for built in this place a sanctuary. A farmer, said Strazzacappa, who also sees him the wonderful Lady. From this moment begins the prodigies in the woods of the Incoronata and many go to pray to our Lady placed in a chapel in the time from various religious orders. Nothing remains of the ancient structure, in fact what we see today is the result of modern reconstruction of 1950. Among the visitors of Incoronatai are: Saint Francis of Assisi; Saint Thomas Aquinas, St. Francis of Paola, Saint Anthony of Padua, St. Vincent Ferrer, St. Bernardine of Siena, Saint Alphonsus and St. Gerard, however, remains the goal of the people devoted to the mother of God.

  • Beautiful sanctuary at 15 km. from Foggia with the homonymous woods near half of "attacks" during outings like Monday. Our Lady appeared in 1001, a farmer in the woods of Cervaro near Foggia. Near the tree where the apparition had taken place he produced a votive lamp oil that still today, to popular devotion, continues to burn in the sanctuary. After experiencing various problems in the old sanctuary, in 1950 began work on the construction of the new sanctuary and adjoining "opera don Orione." In March of 1978, Pope Paul VI elevated him to the dignity of a minor basilica. The Interior is enriched by the immense bronze wreath that hangs at the dome with only 8 free cable pulley and swinging ... a truly beautiful and unique, and above the entrance there is the monumental organ of 2000. In front of the shrine, across the square, there is the 57-metre-high bell tower that dominates the territory for tens of kilometres. having regard to the flat area. "The feast of the apparition" occurs on the last Saturday of April, preceded by "cavalcade of Angels" on the Friday before (to which I had the honour and pleasure of attending accompanying a group of pilgrims at night in the cavalcade on foot from Foggia to the shrine when I was a volunteer of the civil protection) and the "dressing" and "Coronation" of the statue the previous Wednesday. The feast is renewed the ritual of the oil for the lamp, donated by one of the municipalities in which is especially alive the devotion to the sacred image. Also the robe with which the Bishop holds every year the statue, who wears it throughout the year, is given each year by a different community.

  • Among the most beautiful Marian shrines of Puglia. Recommended for pilgrimages and religious views. The story of the Madonna Enthroned is extraordinary: to know.
