Santuario Maria Santissima del Ponte
Santuario Maria SS. del ponte 3 - Fine Art Produzioni

Following Via Maria Santissima del Ponte we reach the Sanctuary of Santa Maria del Ponte, entirely rebuilt in the 18th century but dating back to 1573, just one year after the miraculous appearance of the Virgin, which occurred on August 15, 1572. On the morning of that day, the feast of the Assumption, the Madonna appeared in a small fountain near a bridge. During the apparition an unknown painter was called a painter, who managed to complete the portrait of the Virgin before she disappeared forever. He produced a masterpiece that can still be admired in its precious silver housing at the center of the new church. The ancient fountain of the apparition and a painting recalling the incident by the famous artist Antonino Aragon is kept in the sanctuary.
