What a gem!
If you go to the Sacro Monte, please stop off in the town of Varallo to see this gorgeous church, in my opinion more beautiful than the sanctuary.

This is a can’t-miss place in Varallo, the most beautiful church of the area, even better than the sanctuary

The screen
Sep 2018 • Solo
Franciscan church built at the end of the XVth century in Varallo.
The structure is very simple and modest. The church prides itself, however, of one the most stunning frescoes cycles of the Italian Renaissance.
One of the main features of the church is in fact a wall segregating the nave and the area reserved to the friars (a common character of the contemporary Franciscan churches in north-western Italy).
The screen was painted in the second decade of the century by Gaudenzio Ferrari, one of the great masters of northern Italian painting in the first part of the XVIth century, with stories of the life and passion of Christ, with the Crucifixion right in the centre.
The quality of the paintings is extremely high, alternating very bright and serene scenes with very dramatic and nocturnal scenes.
The view of the frescoes is one of the great artistic experiences and emotions enjoyable in northern Italy

This very old Cathedral is beautiful surrounded by parks with trees and fountains with very fresh water, providing you with nice walks and fresh water to drink.
You can also find there in different places all the history of Christus which is impressive.

Wonderful paintings, great history. Handy for the cable car to the Sacro Monte, several nearby restaurants offer a good choice of food.
