In a corner of the Maritime Alps located between the Stura, Gesso and Tinèe valleys, in a beautiful natural environment where a wide crown of gnessistic peaks, from the sides smoothed by glaciers in the ancient eras in roundish cliffs and in degrading hollows in which picturesque ponds are gathered, surrounded by the imposing peaks of Maladecia in the South and Bravaria in the North, stands the Santuario di Sant 'Anna, which with its 2035 meters of height has the distinction of being the highest Sanctuary in Europe.

It is a place where pilgrims can approach to open themselves to prayer and to the praise of the One who created the world and its wonders, in the silence of the mountains and in the beauty of the landscape; a place of welcome where one can rest and restore the body and the spirit, for moments of reflection, celebration and fraternal sharing.

Since its birth, the Sanctuary has always had hospitality as its primary vocation. Built by the old vinadies to facilitate a bit 'communications between the valleys for the sale of salt and oil, even today we want to offer everyone the opportunity to spend a period of restorative break where the sun shines in the mountains of God .
