Online travel guide to Syracuse

Santuario della Madonna delle Lacrime


Santuario della Madonna delle Lacrime

Modern sanctuary with futuristic design

The Church Sanctuary of the Madonna of Tears is almost 80 metres high and therefore the tallest building in all of Syracuse. The church has a futuristic design and was built in 1953 on the site where a Madonna made of plaster cried several times, as she witnessed a difficult birth. Madonna and the church are open to the public and are the destination of many pilgrims who hope that a visit will alleviate them of their ailments.
