  • The shrine is not to be missed, is in a dominant position on Lake Orta. The visible panorama extends over the entire plain of Piedmont and Lombardy.

  • Sunny Saturday around Lake maggiore and orta, we close the day with this sanctuary. Pity it was closed, but we were charmed by the beautiful breathtaking, not nice!!! If you are in the area of Lake Orta can't never climb on top, at 5 minutes from Pella. The Council very much alive after 18.00 and with a clear sky and enjoy even more of the landscape. Then we were fortunate to be only at 18.30 and spent 10 minutes embraced dream! I will be back, maybe to see the effect of the lights of the sunset over the Lake from above

  • A must for those who come to visit the Lake Orta, the scenery is wonderful. Near the area are located several facilities to entertain children, parking and several information panels. Unfortunately, when we were there, the sanctuary was closed and we were unable to visit it.

  • The sanctuary (XVIII century) stands on a huge rocky outcrop of precious white granite that gives name to the complex (Madonna del Sasso > "Madonna of the boulder"). The complex includes the church, with an altar paint by Fermo Stella da Caravaggio, the bell tower and an hermit house. In front of the church you can enjoy a stroll in the fine square. Prepare to be overwhelmed by the breathtaking view over the Orta Lake. The eye reaches Omegna and the pre-Alps in the north, while the Pianura Padana, novara and Malpensa lights can be seen in the south. Do visit on a terse morning, the placid, wild paisage will enchant you. The view is even better at night! Be sure to bring a tripod with you, this is a camera spot! On the practical side: arriving from Alzo/Pella there are two roads that climb the mountain, one is faster but also really steep, the second one takes longer but it is easier to drive through. Be prepared for scarcely illuminated roads if you visit at night. Near the church you will find a spacious parking lot, a public toilet and restoring spots.
  • Peaceful and beautiful place that overlooks the lake below.
  • Very impressive place. The Church is also worthwhile because ecologically locals Stonecutters have thought of take out the stone just beneath the monument by exposing all at risk of landslides. God here meets the man stupid in every way.

  • Beautiful vantage point on Lake Orta, located exactly above the sanctuary of madonna del sasso, Pella is located overlooking the Lake and is surrounded by nature.
