Create an itinerary including Sacro Monte di Orta
Sitting on a hill facing Lake Orta, Sacro Monte di Orta is a Roman Catholic religious structure with chapels dating from the 16th century. Many of the sites tell the story of St. Francis, and you will find handfuls of paintings and statues. Experience all of this while walking through an ancient, peaceful park surrounded by trees. Signs point the way from chapel to chapel, so it’s easy to navigate, but the hill is a steep hike. This is a UNESCO World Heritage site.

  • This compleanno is incredibly beautiful, quite similar to the Sacro Monte di Varallo but maybe a bit bigger. They’re both quite close to each other so you could see both on the same day
  • Fantastic Saint Francisco's chapels and panorama over the lake
