According to tradition, the origin of the Oropa Sanctuary dates back to the 4th century a.D., when it was erected by St. Eusebio, the first Archbishop of Vercelli. The oldest documents, dating back to 1200, mention the sacellum where the Black Virgin was worshipped. The current Basilica (beginning of 1600) was erected around this small chapel, as was the rest of the impressive building complex, including the New Church that was consecrated in 1960.
