Grosotto is a municipality with 1622 inhabitants (as of 31 December 2015) in the Italian province of Sondrio in the Lombardy region and is located in the upper Valtellina. The neighboring communities are Grosio, Mazzo di Valtellina, Vervio, Monno and the Swiss communities Brusio and Poschiavo. The town has few attractions, as it has often been looted and burned in its history. The parish church is dedicated to St. Eusebius, there is also a chapel dedicated to St. Rocco and an oratory. The Palazzo Omodei was the home of the Robustelli family, who were wealthy in the area. Her most prominent representative was Knight Giacomo Robustelli, one of the leaders in the Veltliner murder and during the Grisons turmoil temporarily provincial governor of the Veltlin. In 1487, the parish built the Santuario della Beata Vergine delle Grazie to celebrate the gracing of the village by the Grisons, which was attributed to a miraculous intervention by Maria. The current building dates from the 18th century.
