Stunning Sicilian Church, Thank you for following our 2013 Architectural Calendar
Yes you could say we’re slightly obsessed with religious architecture but why not?

The December issue displays a fascinating cathedral called Santuario Della Madonna Delle Lacrime designed by architects Michel Andrault and Pierre Parat and built in Syracuse, Sicily. On 29 August 1953, a small plaster image of the Virgin Mary in the house of Angelo Iannuso and Antonina Giusto suddenly began to shed tears.

The cavernous space was designed to house the image which reportedly bestowed 300+ miraculous cures over a few months after the tears.
