About Corsica:

Corsica is one of the most beautiful islands in the Mediterranean…quite close to Sardinia (Italy)…..and is home to countless churches and chapels….many of them dedicated to the Blessed Virgin Mary.  And is also known as the birthplace…and place of exile…for Napoleon Bonaparte.

There are several major shrines on the island of Corsica:

Ajaccio: Shrine of Our Lady of Mercy

Brando: Shrine of Our Lady of Grace

Pancheraccia: Our Lady of Pancheraccia, the “Lourdes of Corsica”
