  • The sanctuary is located in the Homonymous street, to which it is accessed, starting from the center of Valmadrera, through a short uphill stretch not very steep. Being allocated on a promontory, from here you can enjoy a beautiful panorama of the valley. It was built at the end of the THIRTEENTH century, in Romanesque style, replacing, presumably, a medieval building with military functions of sighting. If outside it is very simple and sober, inside (nave with two chapels) is rich of frescoes, not completely visible, the late Gothic period of the mid-FIFTEENTH century, among which: the Annunciation, St. George and the Dragon, the face of Saint Martyr and, Above all, the famous Madonna of S. Martino or Madonna del Latte, located on the main altar.

  • This church can be reached along the Via Crucis, short course, although a bit steep. The road is well maintained and accessible to all. The sanctuary is of the 13th century and has some ancient frescoes. Is at the heart of all the inhabitants of Valmadrera and visit at least once a year or more, for Christmas, communion and other local events. Too bad you can't marry, is the perfect location. Place of worship, quiet, ideal for those looking for a bit of peace just 10 minutes from the village.
