Varzo

Varzo the main centre of Simplon Valley, along the Simplon pass, stands on the left side of the valley. With its 53 characteristic hamlets and approximately 2,100 inhabitants that populate them, the municipality of Varzo is one of the largest in Ossola.


Located along the Simplon Pass, Varzo is and has been an important stage and refreshment point for the many travellers and merchants who would have traversed the Simplon Pass.

In the vicinity of Varzo there is also the verdant Cairasca Valley, known for the Alpe Veglia natural park and the San Domenico - Alpe Ciamporino tourist resort.
The patron saint is San Giorgio, who naturally stands on the right side of the municipal coat of arms; there is also the local version of the legend of San Giorgio, which claims that points are still visible today showing where his horse, while leading him to defend the Alpe Veglia from invasions from across the border, laid its hooves to take mighty leaps.


The old town is medieval in character. Among its features are the stone signalling Tower (14th century) and the Parish Church with Romanesque façade and bell tower (dating back to 1100 AD)
