DESCRIZIONE

At 600 meters above sea level, on the highest point of Monteisola the Madonna of Ceriola sanctuary lops from the top. The sanctuary was built on a pagan temple, dedicated to wood divinities and it is perhaps one of the most ancient places of Marian cult in Italy. On the top you can admire a breathtaking landscape… The name derives from the fact that the processions of Canderola were accompanied by wax candles, from this tradition comes the name “Ceriola” (Cera in Italian means wax).
