  • A little far from the city centre, but on a walk along the main road about 30 minutes away. But very worthwhile: a very beautiful church with an authentic atmosphere! Right before that runs the Bernina railway on the road to the train station of Tirano.

  • very nice Church , well worth a visit, its a bit of a walk down mainstreet, be aware they close in the evening ( about 6) and the care taker makes sure that all are out on time...  more »
  • The basilica stands where the Catholic faith says appeared the Virgin and 29 September of 1504. It is the most important monument of Valtellina The sanctuary of Madonna di Tirano, which is located in the northern part of the town, is considered the most important religious monument of Valtellina. Stuccoes, paintings, statues and decorations cover the façades and domes. Amazing the monumental organ, whose wooden structure, finely sculpted, charming on eight red marble columns. For those who went to pull a visit to the shrine can not miss

  • Our group visited this solemn basilica yesterday and it really touched our hearts when a mere farmer seeking assistance from our Blessed Mother Mary. BVM made an apparition to the farmer and requested a church be built in her honor and the farmer's request will be granted. Not just the farmer's family but the whole community hold forces to build a church in 1500's. In 1958, the church built a bigger one to accommodate the growing community. Now, although it's not a popular as other churches honoring the BVM, pilgrims in hundreds and sometimes in thousands flocks to this site and gain indulgences.
  • Great sanctuary
  • Stunning ceiling decorations and an overwhelming organ, lot of colorful decorations
  • Beautiful church.
  • A colleague of mine for a long time organist told me go to pull to see that organ. Unfortunately I came away too soon! It is useless to speak of this sumptuous and magnificent work of ' 600 (restored later) because the only way to understand it is to see her. And spend that euros required to turn on the lights that do shine, trust me it's worth it. The Basilica itself is one of the most beautiful and precious I have ever seen, decoratissima and still very taken care of by the staff, very helpful and patient in answering questions put to him. Fixed stage for once in your life (at least)
