  • The sanctuary of beata Vergine Addolorata di Rho is one of the largest and most valuable religious buildings in Lombardy. Originates from a prodigious on 24 April 1583 made: on the face of the Virgin painted on a fresco della Pietà, in a small country chapel at the intersection of the road to Gallarate and Saronno, flowed the tears of blood. Saint Charles Borromeo, Archbishop of Milan, confirmed the miracle and commissioned the design of a great Marian temple to architect Pellegrino Tibaldi. The construction took two centuries, both peasants of Rho with their work and the noble families of the area (the Viscounts, Simonetta, Crivelli) who commissioned works of art in their respective coats of arms, family chapels. In case of the sanctuary were placed the Oblate fathers of the sorrowful mother, to keep alive the faith by preaching and Catholic doctrine. Father Giorgio Maria Martinelli (1655-1727), whose tomb is venerated at the altar of the sacred heart, was its founder. Even today the sanctuary of Rho is a reference point for the archbishops, the clergy and faithful of the Diocese of Milan and hosts numerous pilgrimages.

  • The sanctuary is an important place of worship, whose construction began in about 1600. The central altar is of extraordinary beauty, with a splendid, marble and bronze statues. The Interior is rich in paintings, stained glass and sculptures. It's a place where you can feel at peace and invites meditation and prayer. If you are passing through the entrances and at the exit you will feel contented in the eye and spirit.

  • San Carlo founded his last sanctuary, designed by Pellegrino Tibaldi. Altar of the fresco of the miracle detached from road chapel where she was. It would be good to visit with an Oblate father who guard the shrine.
