Official site

In the heart of Rancate, a hamlet of Triuggio, province of Monza e Brianza, the Sanctuary of Santa Maria Assunta traces its origins back to 1606. 

Built by Cardinal Federico Borromeo, it is so rich in works of art that it is known as a “Church Museum”. A treasure you can’t miss? An exquisite 16th-century image of the Madonna of Miracles, who is still visited in adoration today.

The Sanctuary of Santa Maria Assunta in Rancate also has some interesting 17th-century frescoes by Bartolomeo Roverio, including a “Virgin ascended into heaven with angels” in the vault.

The paintings representing the Joyful Mysteries also date back to the 17th Century. In 1785 a young Andrea Appiani frescoed the three large ovals with three episodes from the bible: “Jacob meeting his sisters Rachel and Leah”, “Judith showing the beheaded head of Holofernes to the Israelites” and “Ahasuerus declaring his marriage to Esther”.

The Church is open to the public and guided tours can also be arranged.
