Immersed in a mountain scenery a few kilometres from Borgosesia, is Valduggia, on the road which connects the Valsesia to the area of the lakes.

In the centre of the square there is a monument dedicated to Gaudenzio Ferrari (XVIII century), the most famous painter of Valduggia.Also here stands the Palazzo Pretorio, which has a façade of frescoed coat of arms, and the Parish of Saint George, of Romanic origins, with additions and modifications from the XV and XVI centuries. The most precious work in the parish is a Nativity by Gaudenzio Ferrari which is on the third alter; you can also admire a polyptych of Lanino and "Our Lady of Sorrows” of Pier Francesco Mazzucchelli, called the Morazzone.

At the end of the square there is the Oratory of Saint Roch (XVI century), which is richly frescoed on the walls. You can admire other works by Morazzone in the Ossuary, at the side of the parish and in the Oratory of the Saints Charles and Catherine.

Valduggia is also surrounded by many hamlets, Rastiglione, Zuccaro, Arlezze, Merlera, a destination for pleasant walks and excursions.
