Itinerary

The first day the path begins led by the counter-embankment of the Po, in the area between Bozzoleand Valenza, including in the Vercelli-Alessandria area of the Po River Park. The area is characterized by the presence of a famous “garzaia”, the place where the herons nest. The “Garzaia” of Valenzais the only environment of purely marsh present in the Piedmont area, reference point for the reproduction of the beautiful Red Heron. Among willows and poplars we can also see hens of water, snipe and bitterns. We continue our ride in the direction of Valparolo and Cascina Nuova, until reach the village of Mirabello Monferrato, which has several typical dishes De.Co,among which the "Tiràad Mirabé", focaccia stuffedwith raisins, il "Bagnet dal du Furnas", typical green soup of Piemonte, and the"Bagna ‘d Crivela",poorer and more delicate version of the "Bagna Cauda",  to combine with pasta, polenta or croutons. The itinerary continues in the direction of Camagna Monferrato, thus allowing us to access the Unesco Lands linked to the presence of the infernot. We continue pedaling through the Unesco hills to reach Frassinello Monferrato, dominated by its splendid Castle, which for centuries was the property of the noble family of the Nemours, counts of Frassinello, Lignano and Knights of Malta. For those who wish, stop for lunch at a farm in the area, where you can taste a typical Monferrato menu. Our next stop will then be the village of Ottiglio, a cluster of delightful houses built of stone and tuff on the hill, where the castle and the parish church of San Germanodominate. Waiting for you, at this point of the day, the last part of the journey, the most challenging, passing through Castellazzowill lead us to the Sacro Monte di Crea, near Serralungadi Crea. A final stretch of climb will lead us to one of the most scenic  and interesting sight of our itinerary, where landscape, nature, spirituality and beauty meet in an unparalleled context.

The stop at the Parco del Sacro Monte will make us discover a magical place, surrounded by nature and silence, where dozens of chapels carved with life-size figures, among pictorial scenes of strong visual impact, pop up.
