  • Large place up on the hills from Biella. Started as a pilgrimage place, later turned into large cloister and the church. It had over 3000 rooms at some point. UNESCO site.

  • We visited it on a day off. A breathtaking place for anyone, spiritual and religious or not. An imposing building in a peaceful setting where you can let yourself get lost in space and time. After...

  • In October 2002 I saw this most interesting place. During a stay in Biella we took our car up the road to see it. Very impressing it was with its many huge buildings and calm atmosphere. Later I have seen on TV the giro ending stages here. If you are in the area it is absolutely worth while to spend a couple of hours to see it
  • This is an incredible place! Especially in this season, at the end of winter, when there are still a few people around. You can enjoy all the silence and solitude you need to be with God!
