Trekking to the Sanctuary of the Madonna della Corona in the province of Verona

Monday, 28 February 2022 09:29

Trekking to the Sanctuary of the Madonna della Corona in the province of Verona means treating yourself to a dream - though a somewhat tiring - journey. Starting from the little hamlet of Ferrara di Monte Baldo and then through the town of Spiazzi the path leads you up to one of Italy’s most striking sanctuaries.

The Sanctuary is embedded in the rock

In this silent place surrounded by nature, stands one of Italy’s most evocative landmarks, the Sanctuary of the Madonna della Corona. Embedded in the rock, it looks as if it suspended in the air some 775 metres high and overlooking the valley. Thousands of pilgrims visit the sanctuary every year, and to get up to it you have to climb the so-called Path of Hope that starts from the town of Brentino Belluno.

There is a parking area close by

From here you come to a rather long stairway leading up to the splendid historic building. In the past only pilgrims and devotees used to walk this path, but recently the number of tourists has increased year by year. Many delight in the 2.5 kilometre walk to reach the sanctuary, and for those who prefer not to wear out their shoe leather there is a parking area 50 metres away where they can leave their cars.
