About Sanctuary of Our Lady of Montallegro

High quality hoto of Sanctuary of Our Lady of Montallegro - Italy

Even if you are not much of an architectural or religious devotee, you will appreciate a visit to this Neo-Gothic church for the exhilarating views of the surrounding mountains descending into the sea. The basilica was built in 1558 and renovated in 1896 when its current white marble facade was added. The interiors are decorated in gold and marble but the most interesting feature of the church is a small Byzantine painting of Virgin Mary which is said to be a gift from Saint Mary herself.
