Sacro Monte – Varese

In 1604 the “Holy Path of the Rosary Chapels” was started. The enterprise went on for the whole of the 17th century with the help of the people who sacrified time and money to the construction of the road and the chapels. Sacro Monte of Varese, with its 14 chapels that run along a path of 2 km, is the most fascinating Marian itinerary in the world. On the top of the hill there is the Sanctuary of Annunciata, where inside there is the wooden Virgin’s  statue.
