Located in the quiteness of the Alps, Sacro Monte Calvario is a place of peace and spirituality that can offer precious and unique experiences. Here Blessed Antonio Rosmini founded the Institute of Charity on 20th February 1828.

Since 2003 Sacro Monte Calvario is part of the UNESCO artistic and naturalistic sites considered patrimonies of the humanity.
