Sanctuary of the Madonna di Piné
The most famous and most visited monument to the Madonna in the Trentino
The Sanctuary of Madonna di Piné is the most famous and most visited monument to the Madonna in the Trentino area, and the destination of many pilgrims who also come from neighbouring dioceses to this place of hope and conversion.
According to tradition, the Madonna appeared 5 times, between 1729 and 1730, to a shepherd girl named Domenica Targa.
St. Anna’s sanctuary-church is now a late baroque building, dating back to 1730. Inside, the St. Anna’s alter piece, a work by Francesco Unterpergher di Cavalese, is of particular value.
Not far away rises the Monument to the Redeemer, a work produced in the nineteen hundreds in neo-renaissance style. Inside, there is a saintly staircase and a wooden crucifixion group. At the spot known as “la Comparsa” (“the Apparition”), a natural sized group in cast iron represents the Madonna’s first apparition to Domenica Targa.
