What to see in the Local Area

Sacro Monte di Crea

An ancient holy place perched on one of Monferrato’s highest points, this is a Marian sanctuary, documented since the Middle Ages. The church has been rebuilt over the centuries, and the devotional route around the seventeenth-century chapels in the Natural Park makes this an extremely picturesque and scenic place. The Sacro Monte was declared a UNECSO World Heritage site in 2003.

Tour of the infernot

In an area where wine imbues tradition and culture, wine cellars are a distinctive feature. Here visitors can find the proud tradition of the “infernot”, a local Monferrato custom consisting of cellars carved out of the sandstone, where the best wines can be stored in darkness and constant temperature.

VEZZOLANO AND ROMANESQUE ASTI

Romanesque churches are a wonderful historical, cultural and artistic heritage in the Monferrato and Asti area. Many of them contain valuable sculptures; some are reduced to ruins but all deserve a visit, partly for the fabulous scenery all around.

Particularly interesting is the Abbey of Vezzolano, a stunning example of Romanesque architecture some 40 kilometres from Solonghello.
