  • Although we live in Piedmont, we only became aware of this place thanks to seeing it on the Giro D'Italia, which just goes to show how many gorgeous places we have in Italy that this goes...

  • Worth a visit because of the views. Nice view over Varallo. The displays with all the statues I honestly found ugly and rather macabre. I suspect you have to be devout Catholic to appreciate this sort of thing.
  • Perfect place for spending in personal prayer and meditation. And for those are interested in history too, it is worth visiting...
  • The basilica of Sacro Monte is an important monument in the art baroc of Piemonte.Dome made with the contribution of the sculpturs Dionigi Bussola and Gaudenzio Sceti ,and fresco in symbiosis by Montalto brothers. Experiment of the union of various artistic research.
  • I visited because it is a World Heritage Site. The scenery is beautiful, but it can be difficult to understand unless you are a Christian.
  • A beautiful place to visit. Not to be missed.
