Land rich in culture, the cradle of authors and artists, a lively opportunity to discover artisan products and fine cuisine

Nestled in a basin in the Valley of Bormida di Pallare, a thousand-year old town that is now a modern centre of glass and ceramic production. Find out all about its ancient Roman origins, then see its medieval past in the castle, amongst the artworks in the church of San Giovanni Battista and the traces of the writing of Anton Giulio Barrili. Knock on the door of his home - now a museum, library and study centre - where the writer’s correspondence with politicians and men of culture from his times is preserved. An erudite history, but not just that: here you can also experience the lively atmosphere of a summer holiday spot, with a mild climate and delightful truffle dishes.
