Located 900mts above sea level, the Sanctuary can be reached from Maiori through a rugged and steep stairway, and also from Cava de’Tirreni by walking long a mule track that starts from the square in front of the Badia della SS. Trinità. It dates back to the end of the XV century when a shepherd, after seeing the Virgin Mary inside a cave, decided to realize an altar in Her honour. Afterwards a small church and a monastery were built. The monastery was abandoned during the XIX century, while the church was destroyed from a violent fire. The actual building dates back to the reconstruction made at the beginning of the XX century. Recently, thanks to the monk’s of the SS. Trinità di Cava de’ Tirreni work, the complex was completely restored.
