From Breuil-Cervinia, you reach the church along a wide and easy trail


Description of the route

The Church was built as a memorial to the dead of the Battaglione Alpini Sciatori Monte Cervino (Matterhorn Ski Battalion) and can be easily seen from the village if you look towards the Matterhorn (at night it is also illuminated). You reach the church along a wide and easy trail, mainly on farm roads, from the tennis courts at the end of the village. A small car-park is available here. Follow the yellow signs for no.13, the same trail that leads you to the Oriondé/Duca degli Abruzzi Refuge at the foot of the Matterhorn. On the left of the Church there is a large cross in deal wood as a reminder of the celebration of Holy Mass by Pope John Paul II on 19 July 1991 and on a nearby rock there is a bronze plaque commemorating the event. From here you can enjoy a marvellous view of the village and the valley.
