SANCTUARY OF MADONNA DEL FRASSINO

Description

In the municipality of Oneta, in the Riso Valley, the Sanctuary of Madonna del Frassino (Our Lady of the Ash Tree) is located on the slopes of Mount Alben, on a hill at an altitude of 954 metres. The name originates from "Frasen", a hill where there was a majestic ash tree and, thus, the inhabitants began to call the place with the specific name of the tree.

Given the considerable distance from the village of Oneta, the sanctuary is considered a place of peace and serenity and the structure is surrounded by a large panoramic churchyard, from which it is possible to admire the Riso Valley’s beauty.

The Sanctuary of Madonna del Frassino, dating back to 1502, recalls the apparition of Our Lady in 1512 to the young Pierina Carobbio, known to all as Petruccia and houses valuable frescoes and sculptures.

On request it is possible to organise a guided tour. Indoor and outdoor picnic areas and a meeting room for up to 30 people.
