  • From the garden in front of the sanctuary it enjoys an exceptional view of the Lake Orta. To see absolutely.

  • Unfortunately the sanctuary is open from 15 was closed. The view is gorgeous! From Windows seems a mystical place and high arches. We will be back!

  • From here a nice view of the Lake of Orta. In the church you can unwind by the worldly worries, interview with the pastor was very friendly. Do if you are here in the region.

  • 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.

  • A landscape and an exceptional place to enjoy and see a little star that is Lake Orta. To recommend the evening to enjoy what you do not see normally
