The Sanctuary can be reached from Cuneo, travelling up the Stura Valley (Valle Stura di Demonte) for some 60 km. If you’re coming from Nice take the Tinèe Valley (Vallée de la Tinée) and go over the Colle della Lombarda pass (Col de la Lombarde). The distance is approximately 100 km.
The road is accessible to all vehicles under 10 meters in length.
For those who wish to make the pilgrimage on foot from Cuneo, we suggest taking the old military road from Piano Quinto, shortly after Borgo San Dalmazzo. You can take it from the group of houses called Frazione Bedoira, up to Pratolungo.
From Pratolungo there are a number of shortcuts for those on foot along the road that leads to the Sanctuary. The route is some 15 kilometers long and it generally takes 4 hours on foot.
