Description

A stay that will take the visitor to discover the symbolic
mountains of the valley.

Each itinerary will be steeped in history and culture: we will pass from the remains of the fortifications of the Vallo Alpino, to naturalistic beauties such as the lakes on the Piergiorgio Frassati trail and the vertical rock faces of the Provenzale-Castello mountains, finishing up with the artistic testimonies left long ago by the itinerant painters.

A real mix for savouring and fully enjoying the heritage of the Maira Valley.
