The miraculous statue of the Madonna del Sasso in the church of the same name in Orselina, Switzerland. The church is an important place of pilgrimage for Catholics from the nearby city of Locarno.
The founding of the shrine goes back to the vision of a Franciscan friar on the eve of the feast of Mary’s assumption in 1480.
