Our railway line is full of important testimonies. The Sanctuary of the Madonna del Sangue in Re is the destination of thousands of pilgrims every year, in the Cathedral the 30 stained glass windows give suggestive plays of light.

The journey towards the Sacro Monte Calvario of Domodossola, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, begins by following the Via Crucis that climbs up to the hill from where you can enjoy a breathtaking view of the surrounding plains.

Perched on a rocky ledge overhanging the city of Locarno, the Sacro Monte della Madonna del Sasso Cathedral of Orselina is one of the most important historical and religious sites in Canton Ticino. The Via Crucis towards Sacro Monte winds along a route immersed in nature, rich in evocative chapels and artistic testimonies.
