  • In comparison to the sanctuary of San Francesco di Paola, there is more peace. in a Gorge in the mountains the temperature changes quickly! Especially the Church of the shrine of the Madonna with the likeness other than usual Madonna we know but just as beautiful. The shrine where the Virgin Mary is full of fresh flowers that devotees bring, just as calm and beautiful on the square in front of the Church with benches around around the square. Behind the church there are three fountains that Gush iced water and nearby a bust of a lady under a cave. At the bottom of this Madonna many laces for hair I'd want to know why but there was nobody to ask. They spoke well of a room, which you cannot visit but when it's ready who can go there, called souvenirs. It is next to the Church entrance and collects all the gifts that people bring to receiving a pardon from Madonna. onesies, bibs etc! But at now is everything in a box because they are renovating.

  • The sanctuary is located in s. Salem, province of Cosenza, at 600 m of altitude in a gorge between two hills formed by the river rose. Surrounded by greenery is well maintained both outside and inside. The bust of the Madonna "busty", so called by "petruto" meaning stony, Tuff, dates back to the mid-1400 and was created by such a falsely accused, that to avoid capture he had taken refuge in those places. The appearance of the Madonna and child are not the same that we usually see but no less impressive. The Virgin is venerated also by our emigrants in Argentina, Canada and United States

  • I recently visited this shrine. The place exudes faith and tranquillity. Around greenery and mountains that help you regain that righteous recollection that you require in a place like that. Really impressive!

  • An icon of the town of Castrovillari is the story but mostly historical faith living in this beautiful sanctuary
