It is the perfect escape from the daily hustle and bustle of modern life, in touch with nature and history.

There are also many examples of historic architecture, including numerous churches and monasteries.While staying at Palazzo Novara, a trip to the Sacro Monte of Orta is a must. The Sacro monte of Orta is included on the UNESCO world heritage list and is one of the most remarkable sacred sites.
