SANTUARIO DI SANTA MARIA DEGLI ANGELI

In the heart of the city, built on the spot where, in ancient times, a Franciscan hermitage was located, the Santuario di Santa Maria degli Angeli (Sanctuary of Saint Mary of the Angels) rises up with its splendid and richly frescoed dome. The building’s construction, work of the architect Francesco Gallo, was finished in 1718. The Santuario has a single nave with a frescoed dome above it which depicts the Assumption. Inside, there are also other works of great artistic interest such as the canvas by Monacalvo depicting San Diego d’Alcantra and fresco cycle depicting the life of San Francesco (Saint Francis) and of the Beato Angelo Carlatti. In the Cappella dell’Immacolato Concezione (Chapel of the Immaculate Conception), is the funerary mausoleum of the Galimberti family, among whom figures Duccio, an illustrious citizen of Cuneo as well as hero of the Resistance.
