Sanctuary Madonna della Corona

Spiazzi, a hamlet of Ferrara di Monte Baldo, is a small mountain village in the province of Verona, which hosts one of the most beautiful sanctuaries in Italy. The "Madonna della Corona" rises between rocky crevices, clinging to the steep rock on the Adige Valley, in the place where a hermitage already stood in the Middle Ages. Starting from the fourteenth century, under the rule of the Knights of the Holy Sepulcher, the Sanctuary began to receive donations from local nobles and to experience an unstoppable process of enlargement of its spaces. A great impetus for the renovation of the building came after 1522, the year in which, according to a legend, a miraculous statue of the Pietà appeared mysteriously "flown" from the island of Rhodes, a former Venetian dominion which was conquered in that very year by the Turks.

 

The current aspect of the Sanctuary is mostly nineteenth-century neo-Gothic, a style that suits the surrounding environment, made of rocks, peaks and woods, creating a fascinating, evocative and very spiritual union between nature and architecture.
