The enchanted forest of Orta San Giulio

Among the most enigmatic and spiritual Sacri Monti of Northern Italy, Sacro Monte di San Francesco is waiting for you to show its amazing life-size polychrome statues, Renaissance Baroque architecture and hundreds of square meters of frescos authored by the greatest masters in the art of design and colour of their time. Surrounded by breathtaking views and silent nature of lake Orta, climbing this Sacro Monte can be a mystical experience which made even Nietzsche in 1882 losing track of time!
