  • Spectacular view! Look for the legend to the shrine: it is worthy of a movie! The still decided to live here, the silence is broken only by the noise from the waterfall to the right of Sanctuary. Great place to meditate and to clear your mind

  • Sight and magazine I never tire and the view from up there is awesome. With a clear day to see from Gozzano to Omegna. Enjoy your visit

  • Very nice view on the Lake after a winding ascent. It's too bad that the sanctuary is not open to the public.

  • This is a awsome place - a must for people who like the silence and great views
  • 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.
  • I went to the sanctuary quite by accident, more than anything else to enjoy the magnificent view of Lake Orta, and I was pleasantly surprised to find that beautiful sanctuary was. Inside is fully lined with paintings and frescoes tending to rose that albeit a not very famous painter is worth being appreciated. All kept with care. Outside there are public services, a bar and a beautiful and nice Park where you can relax. Splendid.
