Santuario della Madonna del Castagno

Next to the Convento di San Silvestro there is the small Sanctuary of the Madonna del Castagno built in 1680, an important place of worship for the Carmelite Fathers.

Inside you can see a trunk of chestnut wood with an image of the Madonna, who is worshipped for the blessings received throughout the centuries, one of which was the protection of Monte Compatri against the cholera outbreak in 1867.
