Italy, Piemonte: Sacred Mount Calvary of Domodossola

The mountains in summer, it’s a huge delight. To be honest as a diver, I am definitely more sea than mountain. As I can’t stand the seaside summer crowds, I prefer to relax and recharge to the mountain. Where I love landscapes, semi-desert villages, hiking trails. Light, beautiful gardens and especially the feeling of serenity that calms my hyperactive temper. During a recent short break in the Ossola valleys, in the Piemonte, I really had a big crush for the Sacred Mount Calvary‘s garden overlooking Domodossola (pictures below). This Christian sanctuary built in 1657, is part of the nine “Sacred Mountains of Piemonte and Lombardy“, registered in 2003 on the World Heritage List of UNESCO. You can make retreats at the Sacred Mount Calvary. More modestly, I took a long walk between the kitchen garden and the rose garden and the areas near the ruins under the old trees (last picture). Always with the astonishing XXL view of the mountains and valley. And it made me euphoric!
