Percorsi Occitani: Stage 15 Cartignano - Dronero

da Cartignano a Dronero (7,87 km)
Highlights and tour details

The last stage is a route with no difference in height. From Cartignano the route continues in the direction of the valley along cultivated fields and farmhouses. You shortly reach Ponte Bedale and, taking the farm track on the left, the hamlet of Tetti (Dronero). Once past the centre, the indications allow you to continue on the right, on an asphalt road in the direction of the cycle-pedestrian path that you take near Ponte Olivengo. Going along the Maira stream and in the shade of imposing chestnut trees you reach the wide meadows of the Archero region, now close to the centre of Dronero. A couple of kilometres further on you can reach the charming Piazzetta Cariolo, the heart of the medieval historical centre of Dronero. You cannot miss taking a photo on the crenellated bridge, known as "Devil's Bridge" (1428 A.D.), with its unequal arches and framed by the peaks of the upper Valle Maira.
