Around the remains of the ancient Fortress of Verrua, built between the X and the XI century. We are on the border between the provinces of Turin, Vercelli and Alessandria, at the meeting point of the Casalesi and Torinesi hills: presenting a suggestive panoramic route.
Points of interest
Leaving the Picnic area, past the tunnel, cross the Sp. 107 and turn onto the gravel road; it is a stretch of embankment parallel to the asphalted road, on which we enter and follow for a few meters; then turn left following the road signs for Sbarrera and Calliano: an uphill climb of about 1,2 km with slope of up to 18%.
Arriving at the crest, at the Stop sign go right and on leaving the village, turn left following the directions for Sulpiano, which is reached after about 4 km; go through it and then take the Sp. 107, following the road signs without deviation to Cervoto and Longagnano.
Go through Cervoto, and then Longagnano, a small borough; just outside the borough on a gravel road for about 1.5 km, you come onto an asphalted road, turn right to "Valentino", where you have a beautiful view of the plain and of the Alps,
Continue following the road signs for Verrua Savoia, Crescentino.
At Verrua Savoia go past the church until you find a sign on the right for FORTEZZA, which is worth a visit, then go back, to return to the starting point follow the road signs for Crescentino, and before the bridge turn right to Casale Monferrato
