  • The oldest, largest and most would say the nicest artistically in the complex of the Sacri Monti of Piedmont and Lombardy. The chapels are magnificent, some sadly in a State of degradation due to the time, not to neglect. In a couple of hours you will complete the convenient sequential path of chapels, including the basilica and the beautiful central square. For the historical importance and placement nature definitely worth the trip, handy if you arrive from Turin or Milan. However, there is a "but": inconceivable that during the winter season, from December to March, the only hotel-restaurant (quite valid) remain closed. You have to make do with two extremely modest bar-refreshment for a sandwich, one before and the other inside the arrival station of the cable car. Or go down to the village and eventually return to the top of the mountain to resume the visits stopped. Recommended the ascent by cable car and the downhill walk (15 minutes) along the comfortable and wide staircase that ends right near the departure station of the cable car and the nearby car parking. There is no possibility to have lunch on the mountain in winter, I recommend the pub-trattoria Northeast right in front of the cable car station, in the heart of the beautiful public garden in Varallo. Great food and fairly priced, essential to book saw the small number of tables.

  • It is one of the most beautiful, the most famous and best preserved of the sacred mounts across Europe. An exciting place next to a wonderful nature which leads a visit to a real moment of rest and reflection, even for those who are not religious.

From above EC a ortina sight ... is in the Centre of the village, overlooking a large square ... where in July always welcomes famous singers for the feast of Alpaa! You drink ... and you can complete ... very beautiful and precious embroidery around!
