Address: Via Piccinini, 28, 47016 Predappio Alta (FC), Italia
Telephone number: +39.0543.922323


“Beata Vergine della Maestà” Sanctuary rises on the southern side of Piazza Cavour in Predappio Alta. It is an XVIII century building. It was restored in 1927 by the architect Antonio Rizzi and dedicated to Beata Vergine della Maestà for the favours received and in memory of the fallen in the First World War battles.
The Sanctuary has only a nave. On the main altar there is a painting portraying the Holy Mother with her baby; the painting is in late Gothic style and was placed there in 1774.
According to the legend the picture was painted by an anonymous artist who stopped there during the XIV century.
A table and an altarpiece in stucco compose the main altar. They lean on the bottom wall decorated by an alt-relief. The stucco alt-relief portrays a couple of angels, some clouds, little angels and cherubs surrounding a benedictory Jesus. This alt-relief belongs to the Bolognese Toselli's school; the Toselli’s were very active in Forlì.
From the walls of the nave hang two big XVIII century paintings framed with stucco frames. They portray Giuditta at Olofene's tent and Giuditta holding Oloferne's decapitated head.


The village fete dedicated to the patron saint takes place on the third Sunday of October.
