Sacro Monte di Orta, Orta San Giulio

4.6
#1 of 31 in Sightseeing in Province of Novara
Religious Site Historic Site
Sitting on a hill facing Lake Orta, Sacro Monte di Orta is a Roman Catholic religious structure with chapels dating from the 16th century. Many of the sites tell the story of St. Francis, and you will find handfuls of paintings and statues. Experience all of this while walking through an ancient, peaceful park surrounded by trees. Signs point the way from chapel to chapel, so it’s easy to navigate, but the hill is a steep hike. This is a UNESCO World Heritage site.

  • During a trip on the Lake Orta detour you should definitely to Sacro Monte Orta get. There are 21 small chapels which focus on the life of Francis of Assisi. You can fall in love in the many beautiful pictures, figures and frescos.

  • Unusual site, definitely worth visiting but is not required as it should and having regard to the places where it is and just a shame. Supervisors should take note of how the Sacred Mount of varallo-go look to improve.

  • It is not necessary to be religious to appreciate this place, calling for calm and serenity. Beautiful view from the Summit
