Santuario delle Grazie, Mantua, Italy

The sanctuary of Beata Vergine Maria delle Grazie is an important church near Mantua, the city I live. It is said Francesco Gonzaga wanted to build it in 1399 as an offering to Our Lady after the end of the plague.

People come here to do pilgrimage in summer and during August there is an exibition of people who draw Saints and the Holy Family with chalks.
