Santuario della Madonna di Pinè

The Sanctuary of Madonna di Pinè is the heart of Marian devotion in Trentino.

Santuario della Madonna di Pinè

The Sanctuary of Montagnaga, together with the field of Comparsa and the monument to Christ the Redeemer, is the heart of Marian devotion in Trentino, the destination of Diocesan pilgrimages coming from Trentino and the neighbouring regions alike. An earlier chapel used to be here in 1648, dedicated to St. Anne, which was transformed into the Sanctuary after the numerous apparitions of the Virgin Mary to the little shepherdess Domenica Targa in 1729-1730.
The church, which features a Latin-cross plan, is topped by a copper dome. The walls indoor used to be covered with ex-voto tablets (today there are special spaces reserved for votive offerings near the altar to the Madonna and in a special ex-voto room), and are decorated with 16 large canvas featuring stucco frames painted by several 18th and 19th century artists. Behind the Baroque main altar - dedicated to St. Anne - visitors can admire the beautiful canvas by Francesco Unterberger da Cavalese, painted in 1747 and depicting an ideal conversation where the Madonna brings child Jesus to see her mother. Facing East is the altar of the Madonna di Caravaggio over which hangs an artwok painted in 1729 by Elena Zambaiti of Trento. A third altar is located in the left transept and is dedicated to the Madonna del Carmine and to St. Anthony. The confession room houses the altar dedicated to the Addolorata, the Virgin of Sorrows, representing the seven sorrows of the Virgin Mary.
