Sanctuary of Madonna del Monte
The place, built on top of a hill, is dedicated to Madonna del Monte, and its existence was documented already in 1253. The complex consists of a simple, small church that keeps a 14th century statue of the Virgin Mary, and of a small Benedictine monastery that depends on the Abbey of Praglia.
This is an ancient pilgrimage destination, and one of the oldest centres of Marian devotion of the Paduan diocese.
