SANCTUARY OF OUR LADY OF SORROWS

SANCTUARY OF OUR LADY OF SORROWS

Description

The Sanctuary of Our Lady of Sorrows is located in Borgo Santa Caterina in the lower part of the city of Bergamo.

The history of the church is linked to the extraordinary event of the appearance of a star that illuminated the fresco of Our Lady of Sorrows located on the facade of a house, where the Sanctuary was later built.

Construction works for the Sanctuary ended in 1605 and the following year the wooden statue of Our Lady of Sorrows was made, an exact copy of the fresco, which is still carried in procession through the neighbourhood’s streets on August 18th, a day that recalls the miraculous event of the Apparition.

Outside the church is a large churchyard and the building has a Greek cross plan.

On the main altar you can admire the fresco of the miracle. There are numerous sculptures and bas-reliefs of various qualities present in the sanctuary: for example, the twelve statues depicting twelve saints, by Antonio Rota.
