Church of the Madonna del Monte

Santuario della Madonna del Monte is one of the most ancient churches of Massa, situated on a height in front of the hill on which the ancient castle of the Malaspina rises. It is one of the localities that must be reached and contemplated; we can feel the devotion to Maria, that expresses through the construction of the church. The place of the Sanctuary became destination of numerous pilgrimages. Behind the altar of the current Sanctuary there is on the wall the date 1302, that may refers to year in which the church was built, but there is no proof for this theory. The Sanctuary has a Romanesque, linear and austere, style. The Sanctuary always has been place of pilgrimages: once the pilgrims go there by foot, reciting the Rosary, and during the night they rested under the porch of the Church. Today the devotion has not changed.
