Not far from the Bed and Breakfast " Casa Cairo " (only 7 km) is the Beato Sante Sanctuary, whose high bell tower is also visible from this location. Located on a hill 400 meters above sea level and surrounded by a dense forest, the sanctuary is the object of continuous pilgrimages, especially in August when we celebrate the Blessed One. There are not rare circumstances in which the faithful have witnessed a intercession of the Blessed in their favor for problems related to their health.
