Sacro Monte, Varese Italia

The town of Varese lies at the feet of Sacro Monte di Varese, 
which is part of the Campo dei Fiori mountain range. Sacro Monte is a famous pilgrimage that catholics would make for worship and remembrance. We didn't trek up the entire pilgrimage, because it's a pretty intense incline. Instead, Franco dropped us off at the top. 

We spent most of our time in this village at the very top. It was a beautiful place.

View from the top, looking down at the city of Varese.

Statue of Pope Paul VI. Why such big hands, I have no idea.

There were many ancient frescos outside on the walls of various buildings. 
Here are a few of them.
