  • I quote from the site of the sanctuary of the Madonna del Soccorso Sanctuary "lies at Ossuccio (municipality of Tremezzina) at about 25 km from the city, on the western shore of Lake Como. It is located on the slope of the mountain at 400 meters. s/m, facing Comacina island. Connected with Como via the Queen or by boat on the Lake. The Avenue of the chapels is slightly less than a kilometer. It takes about half an hour, contemplating the beauty of the Lake and the mountains, and meditation of the mysteries of the Rosary, represented live in quattortici chapels flanking the driveway ". Not overly strenuous route offers glimpses of breathtaking Lake and numerous meditative ideas. Not to be missed, invigorating for body and soul.

  • On a trip with teenage boys we arranged the visit to the site. Nice story, the building and the landscape. Greeted us the Rector in a friendly. Fantastic three things: the statue of the Virgin Mary, the Holy and the painting of St. Joseph of the Vatican.

The Sacro Monte di Ossuccio includes fourteen chapels, distributed along a tree-lined Avenue, and the sanctuary of Beata Vergine del Soccorso, against the backdrop of Val Perlana. The chapels are built in XVIII century, celebrating the mysteries of the Rosary and contain terracotta sculptures, the work of Intelvi Valley artists, interesting also as testimony of ways and customs of the times. Preceded by a large portico, the Church dates back to 1537 with subsequent additions. The impressive 18th-century bell tower has a fine concert of 5 bells. The Church has a single nave decorated with stucco, frescoes and scagliola, an altar and a contemporary carved wooden organ. From the presbytery leads to the chapel of the Blessed Virgin of succour, which houses a 14th century marble sculpture, Madonna and child, which according to the legend, found in miraculous circumstances, venerated as a dispenser of graces. On the walls of the chapel are interesting the ex-voto: small devotional paintings depicting miraculous interventions of the Virgin. The main feast of the shrine is celebrated with large influx of pilgrims on the day of the Nativity of Mary (September 8). Retrieved from "discovering the Tremezzina" (Francis Salazar, Edizioni New Press 2017).

  • About 30 minute walk take visitors from the car park to the sanctuary, passing on route 14 chapels, inside which are statues making up scenes of the stations of the cross. From the sanctuary one can enjoy an amazing view of the Lake and surrounding mountains. Very recommended.
