LANTANA SANCTUARY – DORGA (CASTIONE DELLA PRESOLANA)

Description

Located in the village of Lantana, in Castione della Presolana, the Lantana Sanctuary stands on the site of an old oratory dedicated to San Silvestro Papa, whose image is carved in stone on a slab that can be admired on the entrance door and in one of the presbytery paintings.

Over the centuries the structure has been damaged several times and what we can visit today is the result of the last reconstruction in 1909.

Inside there are two frescoes (now on canvas) from the fifteenth century: the fresco of the Madonna enthroned with Child, Christ Crucified and Saint Anthony the Abbot and the venerated image of the Blessed Virgin enthroned with the Blessed Child.

The Lantana Sanctuary is a pilgrimage destination, a site of devotion to the Blessed Virgin Mary, a tribute to her miracles handed down verbally and documented by the numerous gifts brought by the believers.
