Santuario di San Romedio*

In one of his “pictorial journeys”, which took place between 1802 and 1811 in search of picturesque places to be captured on the canvas, the landscape painter Pietro Marchioretto (1761- 1828) also lands in the medieval sanctuary of San Romedio, for centuries popular destination for devout pilgrims and curious travelers.
In the view, with a painting made in place, the author gives us a glimpse of the steep access road. The hermitage, made up of five chapels and other buildings of different ages, appears clinging to the highest cliff, surrounded by rocky scarps covered by centuries-old forests, among which the water stream flows, and immersed in a sky clear. “Even without being romantic,” wrote Simone Weber in 1938, “there is no way to escape the poetry of this deeply evocative place full of history, faith and peace, with the whisper of the creek that lays the road.”
