Culture: visit to the Sanctuary of Madonna della Corona.

This beautiful sanctuary owes its particularity to the fact that the structure is partially close to the rocky wall of Monte Baldo. In fact, the construction was made in a hollow of this mountain (774 m a.s.l.) overlooking the Val D’Adige. It can be reached comfortably from the town of Spiazzi, a hamlet of Caprino Veronese (VR), or with a nice trek that climbs into the woods from the town of Brentino Belluno. For more info click here.
