At Orselina, the pilgrimage church Madonna del Sasso with its Capuchin monastery is towering high above Locarno. It enjoys a spectacular view of the town beneath and the Lago Maggiore and is built at the very site at which the Virgin Mary appeared to the Franciscan monch, Bartolomeo d'Ivrea. The monastery's museum hosts a remarkable collection of sacred art.
The church of Madonna del Sasso can be reached by road, the Via ai Monti della Trinità, or by a cable railway departing from Via Ramogna near the Locarno train station.
