Porto Sant'Elpidio - Shrine of Our Lady of Sorrows

 
The shrine is also known as Shrine of Our Lady of Corva; the name, probably, derives from the word curve which refers to the shape of the ridge; but in some old documents the shrine refers to the rural church of Corba, originally dedicated to Saint Giovanni Battista. The original building dates back to the XVI century (1548), but it was subsequently expandend by the Archbishop of Fermo Alessandro Borgia in 1745. The facade consists of pilasters and a tympanum. In the church, there is the statue of Our Lady of Sorrows, who moved her arms in front of many people on July 25th, 1829. Someone thought to a miracle and this event started to attract visitors. In 1977, the shrine was expanded thanks to the activity of the parish Father Pino. In the church, there is a precious mosaics in which the niche is nestled, where today the statue of Our Lady of Sorrows is venerated.
