The Sanctuary offers a spectacular view of the Gulf of Salerno and is still a pilgrimage destination. Apart from the notable presence of works of art, the Sanctuary is an example of how Christianity has co-opted pagan elements. The divinity venerated in this same area was Juno and the pomegranate was its sacred fruit and it is not by chance that the Madonna of the garnet is venerated in the Sanctuary (the pomegranate).
