Il cammino di Oropa.
Da Santhià, Rassa e Fontainemore
Reaching Oropa means immersing yourself in the nature of the Serra Morenica, crossing the rice fields of the Vercelli area, meeting the Community of Bose, discovering the most important Marian sanctuary in the Alps. Two hours from Milan and Turin: you get off the train and start walking (or ride). The main route includes 4 comfortable stages and is the ideal itinerary for a long weekend. Then, once arrived, 4 day excursions to enjoy a holiday or to discover the mountains. The guide also describes the most demanding walks, starting from Valsesia and from Fontainemore in Val d’Aosta, along the route of the historic nocturnal pilgrimage. 2020 is a special year to discover Oropa: in fact, the solemn coronation of the Black Madonna is celebrated which, since 1620, has been repeated every 100 years.
