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

  • The shrine is dedicated to the Madonna della Guardia. At the top is a golden statue of Mary that can be accessed and viewed using an elevator and up a flight of stairs. Inside the Church is buried Saint Luigi Orione, founder of the order of Don Orione. It is the largest church in Tortona. Is gorgeous and majestic.
