  • If you're passing in Tortona you can't be noticed the sanctuary of the Madonna della Guardia. The imposing statue covered in gold that dominates the building. Truth be told the size of the statue are a little excessive compared to the sanctuary, the collection is not very harmonious. However in a provincial town a monument of this type represents a rarity.
