Santuario della Beata Vergine Addolorata

Description

Along the roads taking to the valleys and towards Venice, already in the XI century some residential suburbs had been forming outside the city walls.

Borgo S. Caterina, on the road towards Valle Seriana, became a trade and industrial centre.

Beata Vergine Addolorata Sanctuary was founded right in this trade thoroughfare at the beginning of the 1600's, much altered at the end of the 1800's, dedicated to the Madonna, who appeared there in the 1500's.
