SANCTUARY of Our Lady of the Guard, in Valle Polcevera, 817 meters high. The apparition of the Virgin to the shepherd Benedetto Pareto on 29 August 1490: Our Lady asked the good man to build a chapel on the site, and a few days later he recovered 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. The episode is represented suspended in the sky, above the Sanctuary that has risen a short distance from the Chapel of the Apparition to welcome the pilgrims, inside which are preserved hundreds of Ex-voto accumulated over the centuries, an expression of the gratitude of the faithful for grace received. The image is framed by violets and forest roses; the phrase: "Greetings, best wishes and prayers" completes the whole. Chromolithography, Franz Schemm, Nuremberg (Bavaria), about 1895.
