Oropa is the most important and largest Sanctuary dedicated to the Virgin Mary to be found in the Alps. It's surrounded by the Natural Reserve of the Sacro Monte and it's located in a unique, natural and ...More unspoilt setting at 1200 m above sea level, at only 20 minutes drive from the centre of Biella. In the Ancient Basilica is worshipped the statue of the Black Madonna, from the Middle Ages. Oropa offers excellent accommodation for around 500 guests. There are 4 room typologies: suite, junior suite, comfort and tourist. They are stylishly furnished with antique furniture creating an evocative atmosphere. Inside the Sanctuary and in the surroundings, there are 12 restaurants and "trattorie" that serve the typical "polenta concia" (made with corn flour, cheese and butter). Not to be missed: the Sacro Monte (the Holy Mount - UNESCO heritage), the Museum of the Golds, the Royal Pavillon, the Monumental Cemetery, the Botanical Garden, the Adventure Park. Less
