The church of the Madonna delle ferle is located in a panoramic spot above Barcesino.
The sanctuary is dedicated to Our Lady of Sorrows and was built at the beginning of the 19th century. It owes its name to the tradition of hanging crutches on the walls after recovering from leg injuries. Ferla means crutch in the local dialect. The path is a via crucis lined with capitals. On the walls of the church the exvotoes of believers are still visible.
