This church is part of the Via del Mercato, an itinerary of CoEur - In the heart of European paths.History and descriptionOnly many years after the miracle, in 1627, the bishop of Novara, Carlo Bascapè, inaugurated the first sanctuary, built thanks to his initiative.The basilica in Byzantine Revival architecture visible today was inaugurated on 5 August 1958.

  • Amazing church on a very winding road the SS337 in northern Italy towards Switzerland. It has a very old 1600 church with a fourteenth century fresco of Our Lady of the Milk which has a great story...
