Long Description:

The sanctuary dates back to at least the sixteenth century, a 1505 writing mentioning a guardian of the sanctuary enjoying benefits granted to his predecessors and which were to be maintained

This convent of the Congregation of Redemptorists, founded by Alphonse de Liguori, is also a place of pilgrimages to Notre Dame. "The pilgrimages to Our Lady of the Seven Sorrows stopped only during periods of wars or occupation, but were soon resumed, especially for the feast of the Nativity of the Virgin Mary.

The sanctuary is classified as a historical monument since 1965.

Le sanctuaire remonte au moins au XVIe siècle, un écrit de 1505 faisant mention d’un gardien du sanctuaire jouissant d’avantages accordés à ses prédécesseurs et qui devaient lui être maintenus

Ce couvent de la Congrégation des Rédemptoristes, fondée par Alphonse de Liguori, est également un lieu de pèlerinages à Notre-Dame. « Les » pèlerinages à Notre-Dame des Sept Douleurs n’ont cessé que durant les périodes de guerres ou d’occupation, mais ont très vite repris, particulièrement pour la fête de la Nativité de la Vierge Marie.

Le sanctuaire est classé monument historique depuis 1965.
