  • Amazing views of the lake, the mountains. The church is ornate and well cared for.
  • 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.
  • Great place to enjoy the view of the Lake and, depending on the day, you can see the mountains and the plain. Easily accessible, convenient parking and a kiosk and toilets.

  • Quaint place with picnic areas in green and equipped for barbeque, there is a kiosk that sells shoes, pizzas and pasta dishes. Great view and very few people on site, visited on Friday.
