Culture

History, culture and spirituality

As well as the museums in the towns at either end of the line, there are also plenty of regional museums to visit.


Little gems that will take you back into the history and traditions of the past: the perfumes of the Casa del Profumo and the vintage charm of the Chimney Sweep Museum in Santa Maria Maggiore and the Museum of the Centovalli and Terre di Pedemonte in Intragna.

You are certain to be enchanted by the fascinating shrine in Re that, together with the Sacro Monte Calvario in Domodossola and the shrine of the Madonna del Sasso in Locarno, attracts thousands of
tourists each year.
