Notre Dame de Dromon, Saint-Geniez, Alpes de Haute-Provence, France
In 1656, about 2.5 miles from the alpine village of Saint-Geniez, as 12-year-old herder Honoré was praying before a wooden cross on a stone mound, he heard the voice of the Blessed Virgin asking him to dig there to uncover chapels dedicated to her long ago. Excavations on the mountain located a crypt chapel dating back to around 1000, on the site of the ancient city of Theopolis. The upper chapel holds an alabaster statue of the Virgin and Child from the 1600s (picture from Dominique Bidon, "Chapelle et crypte de Dromon," www.saint-geniez.net/chabert/chabert2.html). The annual pilgrimage takes place on Bastille Day, July 14.
