Saluzzo and its Plain
CITY OF ART AND CULTURE
During the Middle Ages, the plain that hosts the “King of Stone” valleys used to be the land of the Marchises of Saluzzo, whose artistic heritage is still visible in both the local town-planning and the architecture. The heritage of the Marchisate of Saluzzo lives today in several castles and noble residences distributed all over the territory: from the Castile of Saluzzo to the Castle of the Marchises in Manta, from the residence of Racconigi to the Tapparelli Castles of Lagnasco.
Historic buildings and ancient churches dot the roads of the Saluzzo plain, which tourists appreciate also thanks to the local gastronomy, which spans from orchards to holdings of cattle breeds such as the Friesian and the Piedmontese.
Along the road routes among the villages of the Saluzzo region, cycle tourists can also discover the excellence of artisanship such as the processing of Luserna stone or the quartzite of Barge.
