The majestic clock overlooks the town of Mori
The Santuario di Montalbano, dedicated to Our Lady of the Annunciation stands in a panoramic area and stands out for its bell tower and spire with a majestic clock that is four metres in diameter.
To reach the Shrine, leave your car at Mori Vecchio and follow an uphill road for approximately 15 minutes.
Over the six panelled portal, the work of the sculptor Luigi Bombana, important dates in the history of Mori have been engraved: 1556 (the year the shrine was built), 5.8.1703 (date of the offering to the Madonna to thank her for saving the village from the French troops of General Vendome), 1809 (end of the Kingdom of Bavaria and beginning of the Kingdom of Italy), 1855 (cholera epidemic), 1914-1918 and 1940-1945, dates of the two world wars.
Inside the Santuario are two valuable seventeenth century canvases by Gasparantonio Cavalcabò.
The Santuario is also connected to the figure of San Giuseppe (who is remembered on the 19th of March): which is why on the last Sunday of March the community of Mori gather in the Piazzale above the Santuario to eat “grostoi”, a typical sweet from Trentino, and ring “el campanò” on the bells.
