The Madonna del Ghisallo climb is special: it’s the symbol and most important pass off the Giro di Lombardia since 1919, it’s been part of many editions of the Giro d’Italia, and you can climb up from Bellagio. The Ghisallo is not only one of the many popular Italian cycling climbs: it's legendary, it’s a popular pilgrimage destination, and it’s the spiritual capital of cycling. On top of the climb is the Madonna del Ghisallo Cycling Sanctuary and Ghisallo Cycling Museum: two places that will show you how important the sport of cycling is and has been in Italy since the early 1900s. The memorabilia, spirituality, and the many legendary stories make the Ghisallo one of the most unique places in the world for cyclists.
