  • Like every year you can not come in Marciana and not go to the Madonna del monte. Beautiful trail and spectacular views make the effort (so to speak) a pleasure. As well as the sanctuary and fresh water. It is from here, then you can start various hiking trails (the one for Z is nice). I highly recommend it.

  • Starting from the Pisan fortress of Marciana and along a path among the ancient chestnut groves, well groomed and marked by the stations of the cross, enjoying a magnificent panorama, a near-perfect visibility, allowing the view, not only of Corsica and Capraia, but even of distant Gorgona, we came to the sanctuary of the Madonna del Monte , the oldest on the island. The Church, surrounded by greenery in a particularly charming, is datable to the 16th century (although there is evidence of occupation of the site already in ancient times). The inside looks very bare and twilight, the silence and the coolness which reigns in this sanctuary, create an atmosphere very charming collection. Especially poignant is the image of our Lady assumed into heaven, painted on a block of granite, dating probably from the 13th century when it was included in a small kiosk opposite the fountain later incorporated in the Church: very beautiful are also, behind the altar, the frescoes attributed to Sodom and found after a recent restoration. Dating back to 1690, of particular interest is the esedra in front of the façade from which flows perennially the most pure water of huts, while the romitorio adjacent to the Church is from the 16th century, not far from the sanctuary is the Grotta della Madonnina, a particular place that is venerated statue of the Virgin, which traditionally sat on the granite Boulder. This is a place that is definitely worth a visit.

  • We were a little hesitant to visit the sanctuary, the Church was closed, we then went on to the path toward the stone monsters and been a spectacle of nature. Lovely greenery, flowers and shrubs in bloom. It seemed there had been a man's hand, but it was all divine work. Birdsong and ' absolute peace. Definitely worth a visit, go for it.
