Illustrious architects, including the ubiquitous Filippo Juvarra, have created a series of constructions in harmony with the cisrcostante environment. What I liked least is that the place has become a center of attraction for everything less than for the main purpose. We arrived on a Sunday afternoon and struggled to find a parking lot for the car in the crowd. The upper basilica is closed for restorations, the old basilica was Semivuota. Everyone was poured into the shops, in the restaurants packed or out on the lawns to sunbathe. More than a place of worship I thought it was a big mall. My poor vote is determined by this factor.
il Santuario è spettacolare. In più quando sono andata io, ho avuto due giorni di sole e cielo sereno come capita raramente. Ottimo!!! more »The sanctuary is spectacular. Plus when I went, I had two days of sunshine and clear skies as rarely happens. Great!!!
The place is awesome. We walked from Biella to Oropa in 3 hours in January this winter. A very nice adventure. The hostel room of the Sanctuary was however a bit cold during the night.
it's a place to find peace and refuge for those with weary hearts 😍
