Points of interest

Novara - Ossario della Bicocca: a pyramid-shaped construction built in 1879 which arises on land where on March 23, 1849 the battle which saw the Piedmontese and Austrian army clash with negative consequences  for the Piedmontese was held.

Terdobbiate - Oratory of San Pietro: inside the small building there is a precious fresco of the Madonna enthroned with Child between Saints Peter and Antonio Abate, of  Cagnola

Sozzago - Parish church of San Silvano: the existence of the church dedicated to San Silvano  already known since 1165, but the current forms are the result of reconstruction of the eighteenth century

Cerano - Church of San Pietro: located near the cemetery on the road that leads to Ticino; changes were carried out in the baroque and neoclassical period on the original structure, but then remained unchanged in its basic structure. The tripartite façade is worthy of note. Inside are valuable 15th century frescoes

The Natural Park of the Valle del Tricino: established by regional law of 1978, covering  an area of 6500 hectares and occupies a narrow strip along the right bank of the Ticino, from its exit from Lago Maggiore to the regional border, including part of the territory of 11 communities, from Castelletto Ticino to Cerano. Created with the aim of protecting the river and the surrounding area to conserve the forests, the oxbows, secondary branches and safeguarding the flora and fauna.

Trecate - Church and Convent of San Francesco: founded around 1475, which became the headquarters of the minor Franciscan friars. The convent preserves part of the first frescoed cloister (second half of the seventeenth century). The restorations in the church have brought to light some sixteenth-century frescoes by Giovan Battista Crespi, known as  il Cerano.

Trecate - Church of the Madonna delle Grazie: destination of pilgrimages, the church houses an  altarpiece of the eighteenth-century altar depicting the Madonna delle Grazie, the work of Novaresi masters of the Lombard school of the late sixteenth century
