Madonna delle Grazie Sanctuary

Capoliveri

The Madonna delle Grazie Sanctuary was built in the 16th century in a Latin cross form, with a scaled dome and a squat Oriental style bell tower. The façade has a door with an arc above it and a shield with the Madonna’s initials. The Sancturary is from the 16th century, a time of transition which saw the decline of the Renaissance and the dawn of the Baroque.

The elegant Madonna delle Grazie Sanctuary is on an eastern slope of Capoliveri, inside there are pictures attributed to the school of Raffaello.

The Sanctuary has been enriched by frescoes by Eugenio Allori and was looked after until the last century by religious hermits.

In 1792 some French refugee monks from the French revolution were guests in the hermitage annexe and they built a road from the Sanctuary to the town to give witness to there presence and to give thanks for their welcome.

Getting there: On an eastern slope of Capoliveri, about three and a half kilometres from Capoliveri, one hundred metres from the sea.
