Clinging on the rock of the Monte Baldo, the Madonna della Corona overlooks the Adige river valley.
2,540 ft above sea level, in the past it could be reached only through a very dangerous, winding trail cut in the steep rock.
All over Europe, shrines dedicated to the Virgin Mary are very meaningful places foir the local identity.
The Madonna della Corona shrine makes no exception.
Nowadays it is a center of spirituality and silence, open all year long in an incredible environment, 30 minutes from lake Garda. A little discovery that you make after a short 20 minutes walk from the close by parking lot.
Slowly you get into the religious and meditative atmosphere of the place.
Pope John Paul II was there in the year 1988.
This very intimate and really unusual visit, can be easily incorporated in the schedule of our Northern lake Garda tour
