Church Sanctuary of the Madonna of Tears

Syracuse city

The Church Sanctuary of the Madonna of Tears is the destination of many faithful and pilgrims coming from all over the world.

The Church Sanctuary of the Madonna of Tears is 90 metres high and it is the tallest building in all of Syracuse, and one of the most unusual churches in the world. Construction began in 1966 after an image of Madonna was reported to have shed tears for 3 days, and lasted almost 3 decades. Today this church is the destination of many faithful and pilgrims coming from all over the world.
The shape of the building was designed to represent a tear fallen from heaven, and the interior is lit up by many slitted windows that go all the way up to the peak of the building.
