The Sanctuary Fortress of MADONNA DI CASTELMONTE near Cividale del Friuli

(Europe — Italia - Friuli Venezia Giulia region - Province of Udine - Homogeneous area of Cividale and Natisone Valleys - Prepotto municipal district)

  The sanctuary of ‘The Madonna (or ‘Virgin Mary’) of Castelmonte' is one of the most ancient in the Middle-Europe 
  It was already built in 1200 a.C.. It is located on the beginning southern chain of hills in the Natisone Valleys, at 618 metres a.s.l., 9 km from Cividale del Friuli, 11 km from Prepotto (its municipal district), 6,5 km from San Pietro al Natisone (San Quirino bridge).

 The statue of the Virgin Mary (which is black coloured, as other similar ones in the Middle-Europe) dates back to 1400. The sanctuary (which has also a crypt and an ex voto gallery) is located on the top of a little fortified hamlet that still conserves the ancient wall, the gate and a little paved street.

 Several there are the services that the Capuchin friars, who take care of the sanctuary, give to the pilgrims, besides the daily religious ones: lift, rooms for meetings (40-80 seats), two facilities for accommodation and refreshment, two shops for religious articles and souvenirs.

There is also published (and sent everywhere in the world) a bulletin.
