Orridi di Uriezzo

The visit to the Orridi di Uriezzo is a quiet and pleasant walk also suitable for families, which allows you to admire one of the many signs left by the passage of time during the last ice age, about 14,000 years ago.

In truth, the definition of ravine certainly does not seem the most appropriate for this remarkable and pleasant spectacle of nature … the result of a very long erosion of the glacier that once covered these areas.


There are different combinations of routes to visit the area, you can also start from Verampio or Premia , on this occasion we started from Baceno , perhaps the most convenient starting and return point … During the weekends, to avoid a possible “Crowding” it is better to start the tour early in the morning.


In Baceno we start from the beautiful Church of San Gaudenzio , on Sunday morning the Church is open, and it is worth visiting before the start of the mass; from the square, a beautiful view of the distant and imposing Monte Cervandone .

Follow the marked path towards Verampio and then the signs for the Marmitte dei Giganti area in Maiesso ; retracing your steps you enter the southern ravine , the most interesting, about 200 meters long and up to 30 meters deep.

Leaving the southern Orrido, head through the meadows towards the Oratory of Santa Lucia , a small church built between 1663 and 1764 as a “thank you” from the small community of Uriezzo (15 families at the time), for having survived to the plague epidemic that struck Ossola in 1513.

From the Oratory we then head towards the north-east Orrido, leaving from which, after a visit to the houses of Uriezzo , we can return to Baceno .

Other ravines that can be visited in the area are the northwest ravine, the “Orrido di Santa Lucia” and “Orrido di Arvera” .
