“Worth the climb for the view”

Sacro Monte di Orta
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed July 22, 2013

The view is the best but also the chapels are very beautiful and the Church. Many Italians get married in the Church up here. It's a Unesco site and dedicated to St. Francis of Assisi.
Nothing to dislike.

This is a fascinating bit of a hill, with many interesting chapels. You probably haven't seen anything quite like this.

Lovely views over Lake Orta from Sacro Monte. Numerous chapels set in spacious grounds with fresoes and statues portraying St Francis Assisi's life.

Bit of a hike up to Sacro Monte from Orta San Giulio, but the views of Lake Orta are well worth the effort. Pleaseant stroll around the grounds and the small herb/cottage garden was interesting.

This was an unexpected bonus on the day we visited Orta. Tranquil, green, peaceful full of shrines mainly to st. Francis. You can understand why this is a Unesco site. Well worth a visit.
