La tradizione religiosa - Religious tradition


Il monte ha nome da Gonario, Giudice (re) di Torres del 12° secolo. La tradizione gli attribuisce anche la costruzione del santuario dedicato alla Madonna cui si era votato mentre stava per naufragare. La leggenda narra che una luce, proveniente dal monte che prenderà il suo nome, lo orientò nella tempesta consentendogli di raggiungere la costa e salvarsi. A 40 anni Gonario abdicò e si ritirò a Clairvaux, dove morì a quasi 70 anni.


The mountain has its name from Gonario, Judge (king) of Torres during the 12th century. Tradition ascribes to him the construction of the shrine dedicated to the Virgin Mary, to whom he voted himself as he was sinking during a storm. Legend has it that a light, coming from the mountain that takes its name, oriented him in the storm and allowed him to reach the coast. When he was 40, Gonario abdicated and retired to Clairvaux, where he died almost 70.

Certamente gli è andata bene, a cominciare dal naufragio e tenuto conto che ha anche partecipato alle crociate... Un saluto cordiale e ancora un ringraziamento!
