the Sanctuary of the Madonna del Libro
A long history of devotion
The Sanctuary of the Madonna del Libro is located near the village of Leccia. It was built at the beginning of the 17th century and is a typical example of the popular religious architecture of those years.
The church has a T-shaped plan and an external portico supported by wide pillars. Its name derives from a picture that is kept there, a Madonna with Child, where the Virgin is depicted in the act of reading a book.
