Madonna of Altar - ITALY

(Madonna dell'Altare - Abruzzo)
Palena, 1278 mt

This sanctuary lies on a rock. News about this sacred place date back to 1235-1256, when Peter from Morrone went along the Aventino Valley, after he spent some days in St Angelo Limonano (CB) and in Castel di Sangro (AQ).
A few years later the Celestinian monks built a sanctuary and a Monastery in their founding father's honour. They took care of it until 1807, when the Order was abolished.
