Sacro Monte di Domodossola (Sito UNESCO)

B.ta S.M.Calvario, 5, Domodossola, (Verbano-Cusio-Ossola)

Sacred Mount of Domodossola is part of the group of Alpine Sacred Mountains included in UNESCO World Heritage Sites. In 1656, two Capuchin friars chose Mattarella hill, which dominates Domodossola, to make it a place to host Sacro Monte Calvario. Thus was born a series of twelve chapels with a decorative apparatus of statues and frescoes, representing the stations of Cross and three chapels illustrating Deposition from the Cross, Holy Sepulcher and Resurrection. At the top of the hill is the octagonal sanctuary of Holy Cross, whose construction began in 1657.
