The Santuario di Corzano is a place where faith, nature, pilgrimages and excursions intertwine.
The building was built in the mid-1800s to satisfy the great devotion of believers towards the “Madonna di Corzano” which, according to tradition, put an end to the many earthquakes that threatened to destroy the town. The Sanctuary also served to preserve the fifteenth-century fresco of the “Madonna col Bambino e Santa Caterina d’Alessandria” belonging to the primitive church of San Bortolomeo. The painting of the Madonna is guarded by a glass case and is a year of pilgrimage for many visitors who come to the Sanctuary to pay her homage.
The Sanctuary can be reached from San Piero in Bagno, a merchant village of Florentine foundation, thanks to a historic mule track.
