  • You can reach the site by cable car or the road. Parking, restaurant, bar are in the vicinity of the site. When you penetrate the atmosphere is contemplation. More than 40 of chapels retrace the last days of Jesus with statues. Don't forget to contemplate the ceilings of the chapels, which are real works of art. You will end with the magnificent Church. A beautiful moment of recollection but the site it wants very educational with these beautiful characters that form a magnificent paintings. Extraordinary view over the village and the surrounding area.

  • Very significant monument in the art of Piedmont from Renaissance to Baroque. Northern Italy's top artists working to create scenery, architecture, statues and frescoes. Gaudenzio Ferrari, Morazzone, Tanzio da Varallo, Giovanni d'enrico and other lesser-known artists to the public such as Michele Prestinari and Fiammenghini create a sacred city of art set in a botanical garden of natural interest. Unfortunately the delicate balance of the ecosystem and of terracotta statues cannot be monitored by optimal restorations, whereby the biochemical degradation and damage are present in about one-third or more of the chapels. Lack of funding continue, despite the inscription in Unesco heritage. This prevents the wide audience to appreciate the high quality and committed research techniques in a village of 1,000 inhabitants were being implemented. Degradation discourages and prevents it from assessing the Viewer. Prof Herman Paleari, Storia dell'arte, Milan.

  • Very nice place, quiet and shady. There is an amazing reconstruction with statues of all the stations of the cross. Really worth a visit.
