Sacro Monte

The Sacred Mountains are groups of chapels and other architectonical artifacts erected between the XVI and the XVII centuries. They are dedicated to different aspects of the Christian faith.

Above their symbolic and spiritual meaning they show excellent beauty, virtues and gracefulness and are well integrated among the landscape. In Lombardy there are two out of the nine sacred mountains §renowned of universal value: at Ossuccio (on the western shore of the lake of Como) and in Varese.
