  • This is a shrine located in the city of Latium, built between 1467 and 1469 following a miracle. The Chronicles tell of a Horseman chased that inginocchiatisi in front of the oak where there hung a tile depicting the Virgin Mary with the child Jesus in his arms became invisible to his pursuers who wanted to kill him. Following this miracle was, as said before, built the shrine and start the cult of our Lady of the oak, which is celebrated the 2° Sunday of September. Inside the Church, one can admire the ceiling in gold and marble temple which contains the miraculous tile (the one on which is depicted the Virgin). There are 3 entrance portals surmounted by lunettes by pottery, and depict: the Madonna della Quercia (bezel), St Peter and St Thomas Aquinas (lunette). At the entrance to the sacristy is the flagpole of a Turkish ship, heirloom of the battle of Lepanto, donated to the shrine by Pope Pius v. Beautiful. Will definitely be returning. TO VISIT!
