Vogogna

vogogna

Vogogna is a quaint little old town surrounding by giant mountains, like Monte Rosa, and it’s part of the Val Grande National Park, the largest wilderness in Italy. It’ s plunged in green Val d’Ossola and not far from the Maggiore, Orta and Mergozzo lakes.
In 2006 Vogogna was been given a prize for being one of the most beautiful little towns of Italy. The medieval village is well-preserved: along his river cobblestone paving alleys you can reach Palazzo Pretorio, ancient place for market, and then going up to Visconteo Castle, opened to visitors. The celtic Mascherone represents the most ancient past time: the tree-man, to remember the deep tie between man and nature.
