  • Wonderful frescoed chapels superbly stand on the Sacro Monte of Varallo, a place of pilgrimage of the faithful. Beautiful works of sacred art that only in Italy you can admire

  • We ran into these somewhat by accident. Nice idea of the cable car to get there. We went straight from the small shop with the idea of buying the audio guides and turn the sacro monte and the various chapels. But at this time of year are not available. (Actually there is hardly any people around ...!). The guardian of the little shop (souvenir, cold drinks and hot, ...) explains very well the history of the place and gives us some tips for our visit (she was really kind and his recommendations were valuable ...). All the sacred mountain is to see, hard to explain here ... but it is well worth a visit. to do in a hurry. I recommend you take a half-day.

  • When we decided to travel to the North of Italy there are many cities that come to our minds. If we decided on the Western side, the top destinations that attract us are Milan, Turin, Genoa, Bergamo, Verona, etc... All of them offer an incredible monumentality. If it is the first time that you visit this region of Italy it is logical that you focus on them. We are in love with Italy and have it visited many times. And no doubt we will return many more. On this occasion, after much reading and let us advise the opinions of Tripadvisor, we decided to include a small town of Varallo name in our itinerary. It is located about 100 km north of Turin. I just spend my last comment to the Church of Santa Maria of grace and its incredible fresh on the passion of our Lord Jesus Christ. After visiting this church, crossing streets and metres rises to the funicular that lifts you to another of the treasures of Varallo. The funicular in very few minutes rises 600 meters. The first gifts is the panoramic view of the village surrounded by mountains, crowned by the peaks of the Alps. Your joy has just begun. I never imagined that I could find such natural, architectural and sculptural set up. World heritage of UNESCO since 2003 and special nature reserve. It is the most ancient of the sacred mountains of the Italian. Founded in 1.491. Assembly composes it a Basilica and 45 chapels in which principals are represented in sculptural ensembles moments of Christ's passion. All of this surrounded by an incomparable natural setting. Follow my advice and devoted a morning to Varallo. You will remember it always.

  • Great place to visit, amazing views!
  • Beautiful place to visit
  • Sacro Monte di Varallo Way, impressive place among the most beautiful. Built by Bernardino Caimi and called the new Jerusalem. Starting from 1500 the first chapels, currently there are 45 chapels and 800 statues representing from Genesis to the assumption of our Lady. A beautiful landscape in the middle of the wood and a trail guide. A wonderful experience.

  • Impressive place. The ascent to the Holy Hill gives great emotions. . Its 45 frescoed chapels represent the "new Jerusalem" created by the end of ' 400 by artists in Piedmont and Lombardy
