Varzo

Varzo ( Varsc in Varzese dialect) is the municipality of which San Domenico is a fraction. Located at about 568m above sea level, Varzo is one of the last municipalities before the Swiss border. The town and in particular the historic center, skilfully restored, retain the imprint and atmosphere of medieval villages.

The municipality of Varzo is located in a basin of the Val Divedro, the 53 groups of houses that compose it are spread over a series of morainic terraces that give life to a series of hamlets, each with its own history and a healthy rivalry with the others. .

The history of Varzo is linked, since the times of the Ligurians, the first inhabitants of the valley, to the geographical position. Varzo is in fact located on the road leading to the Simplon Pass and in an area where there were frequent border disputes between Switzerland and Italy.

The patron saint of the Municipality of Varzo is San Giorgio; there is also the local version of the legend of St. George, such that votive shrines have been erected in the places where his horse, while leading him to heaven, placed his hooves in the last four steps before ascending to heaven.
