Madonna della Tibia Sanctuary
Santa Maria della Tibia or Madonna della Tibia Church lies on a cliff situated at 1,187m asl, dominating the town of Crognaleto. According to the tradition, the small sanctuary, founded in 1617, would be the ex-voto of an ancient merchant from Amatrice who, after falling into a gorge exactly in that point, invoked the Virgin Mary and went home only with a broken shinbone (tibia). On the other hand, according to historical sources, the locality housing the church was already known with the name of "Tibbla" in the 12th century.
