    Built by Don Luigi Orione, later to become Saint, this particular shrine has always been in my heart by tortonese, from an early age where behind it stood the old oratory where to play, the masses that I was always seemed majestic, with portentous choirs and organ notes. Then the celebrations of August 29 with the procession of the Madonna brought back up to the dome and the fireworks were the denouement right after two days with stalls full of games and candy. For me baby was really a party, although it bore a little melancholy, often was the prelude of the end of the summer and the holidays that turned at the end. Today that magic got lost, but remains an expensive place to go just for a recollection in this majestic Church, a ride in the beautiful crypt, a prayer before the Saint's body or even just to look up at the sky where you can admire the statue of the Virgin Mary that dominates the city. A symbol for me, for the community and for many pilgrims who come to visit it

    Known by all as the Church of the Madonna della Guardia, view the imposing statue that dominates, this Sanctuary truly deserves to be visited.

    The exterior of the basilica has a particular architecture. The statue of the Madonna dominates majestically, especially at night when it is illuminated. Inside the Church are mainly 3 points that attract and lead to prayer:-the crucified to human greatness that are situated right at the entrance-the body of Saint Luigi Orione, the Saint of love and the one who built the shrine itself-another statue of Mary with the infant Jesus, whose intercession he gave many Thanks to which we are witnesses. In front of the shrine stands the little Cottolengo, built by Don Orione, where nuns and expert staff welcome children with severe disabilities. Is a sanctuary of peace and love.
