The Sacro Monte di Crea (literally "Sacred Mountain of Crea", although it is built on a hill rather than a mountain) is a Roman Catholic sanctuary in the comune of Serralunga di Crea, Piedmont, northern Italy. It is reached via a steeply ascending route which winds through a wooded natural park, whose flora was catalogued by the Casalese photographer and polymath Francesco Negri.

  • Very very beautiful place worth paying a visit if you're around.. very relaxing and count as a bit of exercise because you're going up a little mountain to see all these 12/13 little old churches with paints on the walls or sculptures of Jesus life! If you're religious it's nice to reflect and pray while you're doing this walk.
  • A nice walk around the historic chapels from 1580 onward in a beautiful, quiet park full of panoramic views, benches and places to have a light lunch. The entrance and parking are entirely free. Some chapels are under maintenance and I wonder if maybe a small entrance fee could contribute to maintain, restore and improve this place that in every other country besides Italy would be an absolute highlight.
