Madonna degli Alpini

On the charming pinnacle standing out on the slopes of Mt. Basso, on the right bank of torrent Stura, there is a bronze statue of the Virgin Mary. At night you can see it from far away thanks to the stream of light illuminating it. For the national celebrations of 25th April and 4th November, the Italian flag is hoisted on the mast at the back.
The statue, created by the sculptor Bay, was placed there on 17th May 1959 by the Alpini section of Lanzo and was dedicated to the Fallen of all wars.
You can reach it by taking the trail leaving from the bridge leading to Cafasse.
Next to Ponte del Diavolo there is the chapel dedicated to St. Rocco, and above it, the chapel dedicated to St. Giacinto. Behind the bridge you can find the giant's kettles.
