Description

The Sacro Monte Calvario di Domodossola is a Roman Catholic sanctuary on the Mattarella Hill, overlooking Domodossola (Piedmont, northern Italy). The Sacro Monte Calvario was erected beginning in 1657 along the road to climb to the Mattarella mountain that overlooks Domodossola, and it was meant to reconstruct the episodes of the Jesus’ Via Crucis (Way of the Cross). It is made up of a series of twelve chapels that represent the Stations of the Cross and three chapels that illustrate the Deposition from the Cross, the Holy Sepulchre and the Resurrection. At the top of the hill is the octagonal sanctuary of the Holy Cross. © iStock / EleSi
