Diocesan Shrine S. Maria of the Cave

Foto Santuario

The SANCTUARY is a place cosy and silent request to prayer and reflection, as an 'oasis of peace'. Certainly it can be a place of pilgrimage and if the faithful want they could use the rooms of the Canonical House completely restored; it can be a chance for a days of living, short stays, moments of prayer and contemplation.

We invite everyone to visit the ancient Cave and the Sanctuary, in Praia a Mare (Cosenza, Italy).
