  • Such an amazing place in the middle of Varallo! The church has the famous fresco from Gaudenzio Ferrari, important artist form the Renaissance. Through the App “Gaudenzio”, made by Politecnico di Torino and Ulixe Group, in collaboration with Abbonamento Musei, it is possible to discover more about its details using augmented reality
  • In a supposedly decommissioned monastery we were lucky enough to find this church open. The church is a real gem, one of the most beautiful I know. The frescoes everywhere seem to be of high artistic value. The radiance of this place is not magnificent and bright, but rather quiet and dull, a place created for an intimate prayer or meditation. Unfortunately, the beautiful town of Varallo was just a stopover.

  • Built between 1486 and 1493, in simple late Gothic forms, it represents one of the jewels of the city of Varallo. The sobriety of the external elements is contrasted by the magnificent Gaudenzian Wall, a plot frescoed by Gaudenzio Ferrari (1513) which illustrates some episodes of the Life and Passion of Jesus, from the Annunciation to the Resurrection.

  • Right at the foot of the sacred mountain of Varallo Beautiful church as far as its interior... You can also find a work by Gaudenzio Ferrari. To take care of the sisters of the convent right next to the church.... There is also a beautiful garden next to the convent with in the center a statue of the famous painter, beautiful benches, beautiful and manicured trees and even the portico of the convent that you can walk through.

  • FROM VISIT, it is a pity that the scaffolding that brought visitors near the tallest paintings as in the period of "Gaudenzio" has been removed. Majestic
