About 20 miles from Verona, and 10 miles from Lake Garda, you will discover the Santuario Madonna della Corona clinging to its precarious perch on Monte Baldo.
The Sanctuary of the Madonna of Corona dates from 1522, although some put the date 200 years earlier. Many trek up to the Sanctuary beginning at the small village of Brentino in the valley below, starting off on the Via Santuario, a long path and stairway carved out of the mountain.
If you decide to visit and make the climb up to the Sanctuary, it will take you 2 hours up and another hour and a half coming back down.
For the less able, the Sanctuary is also accessible by a paved road from the village of Spiazzi on top of the mountain. The road is accessible by foot and enters the site through a tunnel dug into the rock in 1922.
