ITINERARY OF FAITH: OROPA

Biella is a green city full of rivers, with mountain peaks visible on the horizon. No one gets the feeling of being in a big industrial center. A few kilometers from Biella, at an altitude of about 1200 meters, is located the sanctuary of Oropa, whose origins date back to the fourth century (when its black wooden Madonna was found among the ruins of Jerusalem). It is visited every year by thousands of tourists.
