The main place is the Sanctuary. It was build among three levels. The upper has the large basilica, the others have an armonic architecture, quiet, mystical. I suggest a visit to the ex-voto gallery

We went ti Santuario di Oropa last 15th August .We were very disappointed. Basically its a collection of restaurants and bars,with nothing else to see. The church was closed for repairs. Definitely not worth the hassle.

One of the most spectacular Sanctuaries in Italy. Surrounded by the mountains is a must see if traveling in Piedmont! A trekking in the wood to reach the place from Biella is highly recommended. And for those who will make it, a tasty polenta will...More

An amazing location and impressive sanctuary. Although during our visit the weather changed rapidly and started raining heavily and fog was obstructing the view, it is an inspiring setting. We were very fortunate to attend a mass service in the Ancient Basilica which was very...More

The best way is of course by car, but there might be a shuttle from biella. You should look for line 360 from the train station. There you'll find the ticket office. For further info you can check the public transport... More
