Sanctuary of Blessed Grieving Virgin Mary ("Santuario of Beata Vergine Addolorata")



The Sanctuary of Blessed Grieving Virgin Mary is in Campocavallo, a hamlet in the municipality of Osimo, in the hillyh interland of the Conero Riviera.

It was built in 1893 to celebrate a miraculous event occurred the year before in the nearby little church. According to tradition, on the 16th of June 1892  an image of Grieving Mary inside the church wept tears and the next day moved her eyes. The phenomenon kept repeating for ten consecutive years, attracting faithfuls and pilgrims from all over Europe.

Designed by architect Costantino Costantini the layout  sports a Latin cross plan with three aisle delimited by ten pillars and six columns.

If you are spending your holiday in the Conero Riviera, we suggest to you to pay a visit to this Sanctuary, in particular during the traditional "Festa del Covo" – a popular festival held in Campocavallo (Osimo) on the first Sunday of August.
