The bronze statue of the Madonna was erected on the peak of Mount Zerbion in 1929. The monument is dedicated to the Queen of Peace and was built “in memory of the great heroes of Italy” as the plaque below it reads. At the foot of the statue is a simple wooden altar on steel pedestals; a traditional mass is held here on 29th July every year.

Description of the route

To get to Promiod, in the municipality of Châtillon, follow the Valtournenche road until you come to the municipality of Antey-Saint-André. Next take the regional road towards Magdeleine and after about 4 km, turn right at a crossroad, following directions for the Dalai Lama campsite. Go past the campsite and you come to a square before the village of Promiod, where you can park the car. Follow itinerary 105 which goes through the village and then continues on a mule track that goes up through the walls and bushes, until it meets the road that leads up to the pastures. Take the branch that goes up and past the ruins of Boettes, then ignore the track to the left of the crossroad, and continue along the private road on the right, which crosses t he Promiod stream, 1.5 km later. When you come to another crossroad, ignore the flat road and continue to the left until you get to Alpe Arsine and then Alpe Francou. At the upper residential area, the trail goes off to the right to reach a wide grassy crest that takes you to the summit, amidst charming panoramic views.
