SANCTUARY OF MADONNA DEL PIANTO – ALBINO

Description

Located at the entrance to Albino, on the edge of the road to Clusone. Its origin does not date back to an apparition, but to a miracle that occurred in front of the statue of Our Lady of Sorrows, venerated in a chapel of the church.

The Sanctuary is the work of the architect Antonio Piccinelli and is given by the unification of two pre-existing sacred buildings, the Church of the Invention of the Holy Cross (before the eleventh century) and a dedicated chapel to Our Lady built in the sixteenth century.

The church has a Latin cross structure. Inside you can find paintings by Moroni, Salmeggia and Zucco, numerous votive offerings and the chapel of the Beata Vergine del Pianto.

The Sanctuary is a popular pilgrimage destination.
