  • Impressive and vaguely Gothic ... Wonderful stroll through a chapel and the other in autumn, but is a must even in winter with snow, even in solitude. Always the impression of being in a fairy place good to find a corner and read a book and look around imagining being in another time, in another place a visit recommended even to those who have many children, will run between a building and the other between paths and trees, learning a little that knowledge is also play and discovery ,..

  • Art site, Hey, it is a Unesco World Heritage site. Awesome country, starting from Varallo, climbing to the peak on foot and then observing the chapels and the Church once. A place that is lovely for the panorama

  • There is a statue of the Madonna sleeper with a starry blue veil on her head lying in a Crystal coffin, in the underground chapel of the basilica. There are also so many tickets written to our Lady, Thanksgiving for lives saved from serious accidents or of prayer for relatives or friends dead on the road. I have moved. Angel.

  • Discreet site historical importance but of questionable taste. These dioramas dusty and worm-eaten have a kind of creepy and the statues could disturb the slumbers of even an adult! Better the many green valleys of the Valsesia places that dismal and that leaves nothing.
