Sanctuary of Boca

santuario boca novara


Hidden amidst woods and meadows, far from the town and accessible only by a secondary road, it is yet another local work by the architect Antonelli, famous for the Mole Antonelliana in Turin and the Cupola di San Gaudenzio in Novara. Based on a much grander project than the one that has come down to us, the majestic building, although in its extreme essentiality, stands out for its heavy physical presence, in stark contrast to the surrounding landscape of few houses and much nature.
