Late medieval sanctuary hidden in the woods.
The Sanctuary of Santa Maria Maddalena was founded in 1463 in a lonely place in the woods, on a main mule track that goes from Lucinasco to Monte Acquarone. The interior, frescoed, is composed of three naves and has no bell tower.
Following the small trail beyond the building you’ll reach a place called Piuezzu. There you’ll find is a perfectly preserved stone hut, called “Casella di Don Abbo”.
