The Monferrato area offers numerous opportunities to spend your vacation days: activities, sports, relaxation ...
Here are some of our suggestions!
Walking is one of the sporting activities that offers the greatest benefits. It is good for the body and the spirit. So why not take advantage of the beautiful trails in the area? There are numerous marked trails, winding through woods and vineyards.
Alternatively you can visit walking the villages near to Castagnole, rich in history and tradition. Walking for only 3 km you reach Montemagno, and continuing for another 3 km, along the coast road to admire the hills up to the Alps, you reach Grana, for a visit to the Baroque parish Church dedicated to the Assumption, with a Hall of Reliquaries and a Museum of Furnishings and Sacred Art. Going along for about 14 km, you will return following the SP38 and meeting the Big Bench, installed on a jug from which you can enjoy a magnificent view of the hills.
From Castagnole, in the opposite direction, going about 5 km through the vineyards, you reach Scurzolengo, a long and narrow town dominated by its Castle.
