Sacromonte e Santuario Madonna del Sasso, Orselina
Categories: Sacred & Religious Sites, Churches, Tourist Spots
Admire Sacromonte e Santuario Madonna del Sasso, a church sitting cliffside above Locarno and boasting great views of the lake and surrounding gorges. The founding of the church dates back to a 15th-century vision of the Virgin Mary, and the belief that a divine presence resides here endures to this day. The highly decorated interior includes many frescoes, paintings, and a life-size sculpture of the last supper. Head to the platform outside the church for the best vistas. Keep in mind that the trek to the church itself can be quite taxing, so consider taking the funicular up and later walking back down to the city.
