    Madonna del Sasso - the most famous pilgrimage church in the Italian part of Switzerland was built around 1485 on the occasion of the Franciscan Frá Bartolomeo. He had a matron in this place high above Lake Maggiore and wanted to build a place of worship in the same place. In addition, other chapels and an Annunciation Church were built further below. From this Church of the Annunciation, a Way of the Cross leads up the Via Crucis with 2 Stations of the Cross to the Madonna del Sasso.

    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.

    The sanctuary is surrounded by a large square, from which you have a magnificent view of the valley. Next to the church you can see from the porch down to Locarno and the lake and admire the surrounding mountains.
