The pilgrimage church of Madonna del Sangue

The sanctuary of the Madonna del Sangue di Re, which can be seen clearly from the train, stands out imposingly, dominating the plain below. Legend has it that in 1494 a small fresco of the“Madonna del latte” was struck by a stone and began to bleed, giving rise to local devotion to the Wounded Madonna, now venerated in the cathedral of Santa Croce. The Re sanctuary attracts thousands of pilgrims every year.
