Boccioleto

The village is overlooked by the Giavine Tower, well known amongst climbers, whose style is typical of the fifteenth – sixteenth century Valsesia buildings. It is rich in artistically and architecturally relevant buildings; the houses are decorated with beautiful frescoes both in the centre of the town and in the hamlets.

Also the churches, the oratories and the chapels; the bell tower of Saint Peter and Paul parish is majestically imposing. The date of its construction is unknown; however the church dates back to the end of 1500 and was partially restructured in 1670 and 1684.

Boccioleto is particularly known for climbing: in Fervento hamlet there are several cliffs which offer difficulties of every sort, both for beginners and for the most experienced climbers. The towers instead offers difficulties and "roofs” well appreciated by the climbers.
