Santuario della Madonna della Gurva

The Sanctuary of Gurva is dedicated to "Madonna delle Grazie" for the miraculous events that date back to its origin, but it is also known as the Shrine of Madonna of the Assumption. The sacred building arose as a result of an extraordinary number of events occurring in a short space of time, including the trasudation of blood from the madonna's image in a primitive chapel, that since then was considered sacred and miracolous .The suggestive location, that is directly positioned on the river and leaning against a huge boulder that focuses only on a very small barycentric base, still arouses an aura of charm and mysteriousness. Every year on 15 August is celebrated the feast dedicated to the Virgin Mary with the presence of the Traditional Militia of Calasca: a traditional festival that lasts all day, with mixed religious functions and exercises of the Militia.
