THE SANCTUARY OF OUR LADY OF SOVIORE

The most ancient marian sanctuary of Liguria was built where in 643 the inhabitants of the disappeared village of Albareto, look for shelter. Some of the old building structures date to that period. In 996 it was visited by Emperor Ottone III.
The church is the result of various restorations and its structure has Romanesque, Gothic and Barocco elements. The spired bell tower has three plans, opened with double lancet windows. In the sanctuary it is adored a XV century wooden statue representing a Piet, of Nordic school.
The festivity of the sanctuary is celebrated on August the 15th.
