Church of Our Lady Beata Vergine delle Grazie

Pennabilli

Known also as Sant'Agostino, this Church is situated within the original nucleus of the village surrounding the fortress of the Penna family. It is the oldest Church in the Diocese of Pennabilli, and houses a fifteenth-century fresco with a miraculous image of the Madonna Enthroned and Child.  The image has been greatly venerated since the third Friday in March 1489 when the Madonna was seen to shed tears. In 1522 the building was enlarged and took the form we can see today. Numerous paintings decorate the church; of especial note is the first painting on the right, a good copy of the Deposition of Christ from the Cross painted by Federico Barocci for the Cathedral of Perugia.
