An exploration of the Province of Biella begins, where else, in Biella, surrounded by breathtakingly-beautiful mountains and divided into two districts: Biella-Piano and Biella-Piazzo, connected to each other by steep streets called coste and by a funicular.

Biella-Piazzo is the Medieval district, dominated by the magnificent Palazzo Cisterna and ancient churches in Biella-Piano lie the Duomo, the pre-Romanesque Baptistery and the Museum of the Biellese Territory, documenting local history in great detail.

A land tied to its faith, Biella is also the location of the Sacro Monte di Oropa, a monument whose Sanctuary is listed as s UNESCO World Heritage Site. The Biennial Religious and Cultural Tourism Market is held here as well.

Biella is the center of Italian production of fine woolen and cashmere products, which can be bought directly at a discount (and huge savings if compared to U.S. pricing) from the outlet stores of labels such as Ermenegildo Zegna, Fila, Cerruti, Piacenza or directly from the manufacturers that supply them.
