The Sanctuary of Santa Maria of Constantinople was built in 1600. The location is spectacular, since the building sits on a limestone cliff that runs along the river Lao.

Although surrounded by a natural setting the Sanctuary is very close to the urban center of Papasidero; to access to this religious building the visitors should just walk a short distance from the center of the village and then cross the famous Bridge of Rognosa.

Due to its position this Sanctuary has been used in the past as a shelter for infected during the outbreak of plague during the XVIIth century.
