The itinerary develops halfway along the slopes of Mottarone, among woods and pastures facing the Borromeo Gulf, with its islands, and the basin of Lake Maggiore. This path crosses the places that were the Lands of Lepontii, an ancient Celtic, or Ligurian, population, which settled across the western Alps around 1000 B.C. Their main city was named Oscela, today’s Domodossola.

It was October 1887 and, while digging to lay the foundations for a huge hotel with an amazing view on Lake Maggiore, many remains of tombs and their supplies were found: those were the tombs of the Celtic-Ligurian population that settled in these lands in 1000 B.C., the Lepontii. Two out of the five steles that were found are displayed today in the pronaos of the church of the Saints Giacomo and Filippo from Levo.
