Coordinates : 46.140896, 8.488497 (Open in Google Maps)

Subjects : Visit to the ancient village of the town with mansions dating back to the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. Of particular interest are the high chimneys of these houses: in the past the family that owned the house with the tallest chimney was notoriously more affluent. Evocative alleys and also numerous paintings on ancient houses made by the famous painters of the province of Vigevano. Compulsory visit to the parish church dedicated to the SS. Giacomo and Cristoforo where inside is the superb "treasure of Craveggia": a collection of thousands of objects such as ancient silk embroidered with gold, monstrances, precious stones, the funeral mantle of Louis XIV and the wedding cloak of Marie Antoinette, Regina of France. Do not miss the other numerous places of worship in the country, primarily the baptistery and the Oratory of Santa Marta both located in the square of Miracoli. From Craveggia you can quickly reach the Alpe Blitz by car: a panoramic mountain pasture located at 1282 m above sea level where there are shelters with local cuisine. It is also a popular place for the beautiful view of Mount Limidario (known to most as Gridone), on the entire Vigezzo valley and as a starting point for excursions (Monte Ziccher, Bagni di Craveggia ect ...). "Festa della Streghe" which takes place in September / October and evokes an ancient medieval atmosphere where witch hunting was normal. All the streets of the town are covered in theme, stories told in the darkest corners, fortune tellers, markets, refreshment points and many other related events. Craveggia also collects the two fractions Prestinone and Vocogno. The first note in the whole Vigezzo valley as the starting point of the Prestinone cable car - Piana di Vigezzo (1712 m asl) and the second known for the church of Santa Caterina where masses are celebrated daily following the "Extraordinary Form of the Roman Rite".

Recommended equipment : Telephoto lenses, wide-angle, tripod, SLR or mirrolex.

Best months : For the visit of the historical center the period is relative, beautiful both in summer and winter. At the Blitz Alps, on the other hand, both the summer and the autumn versions are recommended, an excellent place for the so-called "foliage".

How to get there : From Milan: A8 motorway towards Sesto Calende, junction Autostrada A26 towards Sempione Confine di Stato, at Gravellona Toce continue on the highway to the Valle Vigezzo - Masera exit. Take the SS 337 of Valle Vigezzo, reach Santa Maria Maggiore and double the possibility to get to Craveggia: or go from the town of Toceno or from the locality "Siberia". From the canton of Ticino: road to the Hundred Valleys towards Intragna, Ribellasca, Valle Vigezzo. You pass the customs of Camedo, you reach Re and after a few Km you get to Craveggia, advised to pass by the locality "Siberia"

Visits : In Craveggia there is a large free parking at the beginning of the village coming from the locality "Siberia". There may be variations in the presence of particular events (market day, witch festival, patronal feast ect ..) Alpe Blitz are available limited parking not marked, all however completely free.

Notes : For more information on the country and / or fractions please send me a PM.
