  • The complex of Sacro Monte dell'Addolorata (1709 later expanded) at the top of the beautiful and narrow valley of the mills, marks the culmination of the cross that runs for about one kilometer from the chapel Door of Jerusalem (1774) towards the mountain crossing a wooded area of scenic interest. The path is enriched by a series of kiosks frescoed by Orelli. Near the Church is the "Calvary chapel", great niche, frescoed by Giovanni Antonio Cabading, (no longer visible) and enriched by the Group (still in situ) of three crucifixes ligne made by Domenico Jealous (1767). In 1774 he built a third Chapel-called "of the Jews"-an octagonal plan with Hall and belfry, frescoed also by Orelli and dedicated to the flagellation of Christ.
