The Commune of Vogogna (Italian: "comune di Vogogna") is a municipality at the heart of the Val d’Ossola in the Province of Verbano Cusio Ossola, Piedmont, Italy, about 20 km north-west of Verbania. The municipality (population 1,702)Italian statistical institute Istat.] is centred on the town of Vogogna and extends over an area of 15.28 km², partly within the Val Grande National Park; the elevation varies between 211 and 2018 metres above sea-level. Outlying settlements ("frazioni") within the commune include Prata, Dresio and Genestredo.

The surrounding communes are Beura-Cardezza, Pallanzeno, Piedimulera, Pieve Vergonte and Premosello-Chiovenda.


The Visconti castle, in via Castello, was buit in 1344 for the bishop of Novara, Giovanni Visconti, and extended in 1449. Above the castle are the remains of the old rocca which dates from the ninth or tenth century.

The Palazzo Pretorio, or "broletto", was constructed in 1348, also at the behest of Giovanni Visconti.

The Sacro Cuore di Gesú is the parish church which was erected between 1894 and 1904 in a neo-gothic style.

San Pietro, in the "frazione" Dresio, is a church of ancient origins and contains two noted fifteenth-century frescoes; it has been suggested that the figure representing a Servite saint has recently been identified as Pellegrino Laziosi, the most prominent saint of that order.
