Basilica of Our Lady of the Sacred Mountain Reviews
Dal parcheggio ci vuole circa un ora per il santuario a piedi. All'inizio del percorso, un cartello avvisa che non è adatto a persone anziane e cardiopatiche. more »From the car park it takes about an hour to the shrine on foot. At the beginning of the path, a sign warns you that it is not suitable for elderly people and the fainthearted.

Down the street you will meet some wonderful cows to pasture! Too bad there is a bar (or at least something is there but it was closed) ... only downfall the caretaker that doubles as a souvenir seller gruffly smiling little gloomy and unwilling to exchange info with tourists

In May is carried in pilgrimage to the sacred mountain where he was found. Back to church in Viggiano in September and we make big celebrations. We traveled by car on the road up to ski facility then walk on x the paved path until about 1700 m high. The view is stunning! The walk should be done with caution and lots of willpower. Even non-believers will be overwhelmed after so much effort. We have reached the Summit in an hour doing so many breaks. The place is clean and at the top there is a drinking fountain. All video surveillance, groomed and well run. The descent is obviously a no-brainer! We recommend sunblock and hat as a result.
