The Madonna

of Tirano

The Basilica of the Madonna of Tirano is one of the symbols of the Adda Valley. It was built in the early 16th century, after the Blessed Virgin appeared to Mario Homodeo on 29 September 1504.

Inside the Basilica, among other works, it is possible to admire the monumental 17th century organ, made by the carver Giuseppe Bulgarini, which is striking for its grandeur and the care devoted to every elaborate detail of the masterpiece.
