The Sacred Mount of Crea

The Sacred Mount of Crea is located on top of a hill overlooking the Alps and one of the most beautiful wine-growing landscapes in the heart of Monferrato recognized by UNESCO.
The decision to build the Sacred Mount dates back to 1589. It was the Lateran Prior of the church of the Madonna Assunta of Crea, Costantino Massino, who had the idea of creating a religious itinerary in images to encourage prayer and meditation and to renew the area's devotion to the Virgin Mary. The strong connection between the sanctuary and the dynasty ruling Monferrato involved the duke, the local nobility, the high clergy and nearby communities in the project. Important artists worked on the project, including Moncalvo, Prestinari and De Wespin, who created the spectacular sculptural complex of the Heaven Chapel (chapel 23) at the beginning of the seventeenth century.
