    It's a sanctuary, inside there are many relics of cycling in the past, we also stopped during a bike ride.

    The place is beautiful, often windy, and you can get lost in the distance between the Lake, mountains and sky. Then, if you are just crazy about bikes, the rest disappoints a bit. The small shrine looks like a repository of old bicycles and memorabilia and you are unable to know the history of the structure (something that seems to not matter to anyone). A legend tells that a certain Ghisallo assaulted by brigands vowed to erect the Church, but nothing is certain, deepened or documented. Effigy of the Madonna del Latte, anonymous, venerated by pregnant women in the past (before the sanctuary was invaded by bike), remains forgotten and ignored. For cycling fans finally the Museum is the highlight. For others, well, there's always the view.

    I've come up for classic bike ride from Magreglio and both the ascent the scenery that awaits you to repay the effort. The shrine then is unique and can not miss a visit to the Museum of cycling.

  • I am so happy to find out the name and location of this wonderful sanctuary to cycling. About 15 years ago I found this completely by accident while solo cycling into Belaggio. I went inside and almost fell to my knees. It is packed with old bikes and jersies. At the time it had Fabio Castellas (sp?) jersey...a local bike hero who had just been killed in the Tour De France. This is heaven for cycling...and the sanctuary is something special.
  • Cyclist dream, pity the cycling museum beside the chapel was open only weekends as a peek through the window showed it to be of great interest
  • The world famous Marian shrine for cycling. In this small church, located on top of one of the most famous climbs of Lombardy, are preserved relics of all the major international cycling. Bicycles and Moser, played for the world champion, photos of so many dead people, make it unique in the world.

  • Madonna del Ghisallo patron of cyclists. Beyond the faith, a place full of votive offerings and historical records for bike lovers and cycling epic.
