The Madonna del Sasso sanctuary is an important place of pilgrimage. It stands on the summit of a rocky spur in a little valley carved out over the years by the Ramogna torrent, at a height of 370 metres above sea level in the town of Orselina.

As well as the convent, the complex of the Sacred Mount also includes the church of the Annunciation, chapels along the old road leading down into the valley with its cross-surmounted portico, the steep Via Crucis winding up the mountain with near-life-size statue groups in niches on the stairway, the chapel of the Pietà in the courtyard, dedicated to the mourning of Christ, the chapel of the Last Supper and that of the Sacred Spirit under the sanctuary portico, the stairway, the cemetery cross, the church square and last but not least the church of Our Lady of the Assumption known as the Madonna del Sasso.
