SANCTUARY of Our Lady of the Guard, in Valle Polcevera. Composition that reproduces three views of the Sanctuary. The temple with the representation of the apparition of the Virgin to the shepherd Benedetto Pareto occurred on 29 August 1490; Our Lady asked the good man to build a chapel on the site, and a few days later he healed him from the serious consequences of falling from a tree; this fact convinced him to ask for help to fulfill the wish of the Holy Mother. An external view with the façade and the parvis. An internal view with the apse crowned by the inscription "Apparizione 29 agosto - Posuerunt me custodem". The Sanctuary was built a short distance from the Chapel of the Apparition to accommodate pilgrims; inside there are hundreds of Ex-votos accumulated over the centuries, an expression of the gratitude of the faithful by grace received. Chromolithography, Franz Schemm, Nuremberg (Bavaria) about 1895.
