The Sacro Monte di Ossuccio is one of the nine sacri monti in the Italian regions of Lombardy and Piedmont, in northern Italy, which were inscribed on the UNESCO list of World Heritage Sites in 2003.The devotional complex is located on a prealpine crag some 200 metres above the western shore Lake Como, facing Isola Comacina and some 25 km from the city of Como. Surrounded by olive groves and woodland, it is quite isolated from other buildings. The fourteen chapels, constructed between 1635 and 1710 in the typical Baroque style reflecting the Counter Reformation ethos of the sacri monti movement, are joined by a path which leads up to a pre-existing sanctuary of 1532 placed on the summit and dedicated to La Beata Vergine del Soccorso.Make Sacro Monte di Ossuccio part of your personalized Ossuccio itinerary using our Ossuccio trip itinerary site .

Very nice view when you get to the main chapel. The ride there can be difficult for some people. Going there with kids would be an adventure!! It’s a bit hard to see what is inside the chapel on the ascent because it’s a bit dark. The main chapel is fairly small but very beautiful. Again, the main purpose of this ride is to get a nice panoramic view of lake Como. You can see the city of Bellagio from there.
Absolutley worth the trip!!
