In a corner of the Maritime Alps located between the Stura, Gesso and Tinèe valleys, in a splendid natural environment where a wide crown of gnessistic peaks opens, from the sides smoothed by the glaciers in the ancient eras in rounded peaks and in degrading basins where they collect picturesque lakes, surrounded by the imposing peaks of Maladecia in the South and Bravaria in the North, stands out the Sant ‘Anna Sanctuary, which with its 2035 meters of height has the distinction of being the highest Sanctuary of Europe.
It is a place where pilgrims can approach to open themselves to prayer and to the praise of the One who created the world and its wonders, in the silence of the mountains and in the beauty of the landscape; a place of welcome where one can rest and restore the body and the spirit, for moments of reflection, celebration and fraternal sharing.
This space on the network wants to be an opportunity to present the Sanctuary to anyone who wants to approach and know it.
On the site you can have all the useful information for access, stay and celebrations.
