THE SACRO MONTE OF VARALLO

The Sacro Monte in Varallo is the oldest and most evocative religious place in North-western Italy. Bernardino Caini was a friar from Milan, who lived in Palestine for a long time. In XV century for piligrims it was not easy to go to Palestine because of the Turkish-Critian war.

So when B. Caini returned back to Italy, he decided to build in Varallo a new Holy Land. For this reason each chapel's name recalls Jesu's history. Nowadays at Sacro Monte piligrims have the chance to recreate themselves in a natural and enchanting place.
