General presentation
The Sanctuary of the Madonna of Fenestre, located at 1904m, is surrounded by mountains, dominated by the Gélas with its 3143 m altitude in the alpine massif of Mercantour which is the highest point of the Maritime Alps. An ancient passageway leads through the lake, then the Col de Fenestre to the Italian side of Piedmont.
Fenestre owes its name to a gap in the Cayre de la Madone, a rock behind the sanctuary, where the Virgin is said to have appeared one day.
