Tips and extras for this offer
On the Sacred Mountain Domodossola, and sanctuary on the Mattarella Hill overlooking Domodossola, nature, faith, history and art harmoniously merge. The crucifix path, followed through the ages by pilgrims, winds its way up to the chapel– and the sacred Sacro Monte Calvario site naturally shares a place on the UNESCO World Heritage list.
With the extension of the trade path over the Simplon Pass, Kaspar Stockalper established an excellent basis for his trade imperium. Trace back history on the ViaStockalper path that leads from Brig to Domodossola. Here, at times, you find yourself treading on the old, original plastering of the notorious Alps pass crossing.
