Santuario della Madonna del Pianto Jan 08, 2017
Located alongside the trail that once led to Selvino, this small sanctuary dates from the sixteenth century. Its interior is decorated with frescoes from that period which have recently been restored.

The sanctuary was once of great importance, being along such a popular pathway and was frequented by traders and farmers who often stopped to say prayers of intercession.

The sanctuary is home to a canvas by Moroni (Christ Carrying the Cross) and another by Salmaggia (The Deposition).

The interior is very dark but just inside the doorway, on the rear wall of the chapel is an excellent display of 'offerings', paintings, embroidery, art pieces decorated with 'Grazie Ricevuta' or 'GR' - indicating the thanks of those who had received answers to their prayers. It is one of the largest displays I have seen.

The interior of this church was also decorated with a vast array of trompe l'oeil, although they were harder to see than those in the Chiesa di S Anna due to the dark interior.
