Our Lady of La Salette Shrine

From the French Alps to Trambileno, an ancient history of popular devotion

This place of worship in Trambileno is owed to donations from a nobleman from Rovereto who wanted to reward the parish priest for hospitality shown to his son, who had fled to the zone to escape cholera.

The population, composed of many former emigrants who worked extensively in France, decided to erect a small Church dedicated to the Virgin of La Salette, who appeared to two shepherds in the city of Grenoble.

The building overlooks the hill of Moscheri and is surrounded by a silent pine forest. The stone terrace on which the sanctuary stands is supported by three arches while to one side is a stone staircase. In a ring all around are capitals depicting the Stations of the Cross.

The Shrine was expanded with the addition of a nave in 1863 and subsequently in 1956 for the Centenary celebrations of the apparition it was adorned with decorations and frescoes. Inside, in imitation of the Shrine of Grenoble, is the Wooden Statue of the Madonna with the shepherds nearby.

The sanctuary, point of arrival of the route “The treasures of Trambileno”, is worth visiting also for the wonderful view on the valley.
