Riserva Naturale del Sacro Monte

The chapel was built between 1614 - 1615. In the apse, the group of statues was made by the sculptor Cristoforo Prestinari (1617-18), and the group in the nave are by Dionigi Bussola (1662). The frescos are works of the brothers Giovanna Battista and Giovanna Mauro Della Rovere, together called the 'Fiamminghini'.

The group in the foreground (Nave) show the miracles that confirm the preaching.

(Apse) Francis sends the friars to preach and while he is blessing them he says: "Go, dear ones, two by two, to different parts of the world and announce to men peace and penance... be patient... answers tie humility... bless and thank everyone..."
