Spiritual places – where you can connect with your soul
Comano Vallesalus is dotted with almost unknown and rarely visited places, which can touch you with their uniqueness and magical atmosphere. Leave the beaten track and let the tranquility and peace of these mystical sites conquer you!
Just a stone’s throw from the little burgs of the valley you can find little churches and sanctuaries, ancient places of worship which once were the centre of the religious and social life of the peasant communities in Trentino. These spiritual hidden gems are the perfect place to go if you wish to find the inner harmony and flee from the stress of the everyday life.
- Sanctuary “Madonna di Caravaggio” in Deggia, San Lorenzo in Banale, built at the end of the XIX century with the remittances of the emigrants. Worshippers from the nearby areas came here, wearing their best pair of shoes. They left their clogs outside the sanctuary, which nowadays have become the symbol of a lost sobriety. The pathway of San Vili, linking Trento to Madonna di Campiglio, passes by this mystical sanctuary, the ideal place to rest
- The little church of the cemetery of Bono is characterized by frescoes dating back to the XV-XVI centuries, with some well-conserved ones realized by Cristoforo Baschenis, who is also the author of the little lunette on the outside. If you follow the historical and religious itinerary unwinding through the area of Bleggio, you can reach this little spiritual church
- The little chapel “Sass de Santa Cross” was built on Mount Guarda as a tribute to the “magic” cross, protagonist of miracles and legends. In fact, it was said that the wooden cross, nowadays safeguarded in the parish-church of Santa Croce, had been discovered on Mount S.Martino and later brought in the valley, but it periodically vanished and then reappeared where it was originally found, which became a place of pilgrimage. Now you can retrace the footsteps of such pilgrimage on the evocative itinerary of the Via Crucis, signaled with the stations of the cross, that goes from the village of Santa Croce to Mount Guarda, a stunning natural terrace on the valley, a unique place where you can reconnect with your soul.
