Madonna della Corona Sanctuary

Cosa fare sul Lago di Garda

The lake has many religious destinations of great interest, often in elevated and panoramic locations easily accessible even on foot. For this reason, we organize religious pilgrimages on Lake Garda. Opportunities for reflection and meditation but also for discovering the surrounding area.


One of the most sacred places to visit on Lake Garda, although not directly on the lake, is the Sanctuary of Madonna della Corona, a jewel nestled in the rock with a breathtaking view of the valley. You can reach the sanctuary by following the Pilgrim's Path, which winds its way up a long series of steps for about two hours of ascent. An easier and shorter alternative is to park near the village of Spiazzi and reach the sanctuary by shuttle bus or in a few minutes on foot.
