High on a hill southwest of the city, the site of a chapel going back a millennium became a church whose great treasure was a Byzantine icon of the Virgin Mary said to have been painted by the biblical Luke the Evangelist, and to which various miracles have been attributed, including stemming the great floods which ravaged Bologna in 1433. The current structure dates back to 1723, and includes a number of other valuable religious artworks. Pilgrims still flock here, and take shelter under the church's large portico - a passageway with exactly 666 arches (hmmm...).
