It is situated among the green of the forests at the top of a rocky spur right above Varallo. It is the most ancient Sacro Monte in Piedmont. It consists of 50 Chapels, some of which are isolated, while others are part of monumental groups. They contain over 800 life-size wooden and multicoloured terracotta statues. They represent the Life, the Passion, and the Death of Christ. From this natural terrace, visitors can enjoy a view of the whole area, from Bassa Valsesia to Monte Fenera. In the north-west it is possible to see in the background the massif of Mt. Rosa.
