Created for various purposes, these trails were used to connect villages and valleys, to allow the harvesting, to drive flocks to pastures, and to cross Alpine passes. While this work of man was once conceived for mere practical use, today they offer a great opportunity to discover nature and move in an environment full of fascinating sights where silence and colours reign unhindered.
The Langhe-Roero and Monferrato winegrowing landscape, which has been admitted to the prestigious World Heritage List, is very different but equally characteristic. A succession of hills cultivated with vineyards, and dotted with villages and castles, are the result of the combined action of man and nature.
