  • The sanctuary of Oropa is the largest Marian shrine in the Alps and also owns a cemetery by many unknown. Situated in the mountains at over 1,000 meters has a shallow end on the ground and a semicircle overlooking Valley family chapels scattered behind him in the Woods. It opened in 1877 and is particular to the sculptures and the characters buried here. Here lie the statesman Quintino Sella, three bishops countless entrepreneurs, politicians, artists, and scientists. Walk among the graves in the bare earth of nuns who worked over the years in this sanctuary, read the 800 gravestones with life stories, of people who faced pains and joys ... makes us meditate on impermanence of things closely. ...

  • It may seem strange to visit a cemetery for tourism, but to Oropa worth it, immersed in a spectacular Valley overlooking the Biella area and the Po Valley (in the days of clear skies), with inscriptions and funeral chapels which date back to 800, immersed in a beech wood which makes it even more impressive this place of eternal rest.
