Hiking Highlight (Segment)
Above Locarno rises proudly the pilgrimage church "Madonna del Sasso" with its associated monastery, which offers the visitor an unforgettable view of Lake Maggiore.
At the place where the Franciscan brother Bartholomew of Ivrea appeared in 1480 Maria, a small church was built. This developed into an important place of pilgrimage. The current building dates mainly from the 16th and 17th Century and houses in its interior numerous votive tablets and a beautiful Renaissance altar.
