  • I used to come here when I was a child with my Grand Pa looking at the "presepio" right on the side of the church ...unfortunately seems like has been closed. love the scenery around but the cave should be open up again
  • So superb scenery of Ivrea 360°!!! A real place to feel the connection with your creator!!!

  • Via crucis on the small promontory near the Forum Boarium in Ivrea. Walk among vegetation and prestigious building complexes. The stages of the route marked by chapels with small sculptural groups in terracotta and sculpted marble slabs. On the top of the hill, at the end of the paved path, there is a small church, probably built on a pre-existing temple dedicated to Venus, surrounded by vegetation. Once upon a time it seems it was possible to reach the country lake directly with a path that is currently not practicable. Place of peace and meditation.
  • The sanctuary of Monte Stella di Ivrea is one of the places of historical and artistic interest in the Piedmontese town. A few steps from the crowded fruit and vegetable market square, the stations of a nineteenth-century Via Crucis wind along the slope of a morainic hill, in a wood of plane trees, which go up to the sanctuary of the Madonna della Stella, better known to the Eporedians as the sanctuary of Mount Stella. The sanctuary was built in 1627 as evidence of the special devotion expressed towards the "Black Madonna" of Oropa. Of this seventeenth-century building only the bell tower and a wall adjacent to the current church remain today, on which the remains of a frescoed lunette can be seen. Continuing beyond the sanctuary of Monte Stella, in a suggestively panoramic place, we reach the chapel of the Three Kings, a pilgrimage destination that takes place on Epiphany day and which grants the faithful a plenary indulgence. The ancient rite of the procession and the offering of candles to the chapel has, in recent times, been incorporated into the celebrations of the historic carnival of Ivrea, which every year starts on the day of the Epiphany. The chapel, with its Romanesque architecture, is extremely sober.
