Gran Trekking del Monferrato dei Castelli Bruciati
From Thursday 28 September to Sunday 1 October 2023
Il Gran Trekking del Monferrato dei Castelli Bruciati comprises a route in 4 stages with departure and arrival in Cerrina in the hamlet of Valle, for a total of 100 km, crossing 11 Municipalities in Valle Cerrina, primarily on dirt roads and partially on paved roads with low traffic, touching the Vento cycle path to the north and the historical Superga-Crea route to the south. The purpose of the event is to promote a territory rich in natural and artistic beauties which are the heritage of the Municipalities involved by the event, a unique opportunity to visit a territory which is little known in Northern Monferrato, along nature, historical, cultural and devotional trails. 35 churches, 8 castles, and many enchanting panoramas, will be met along the way. A wine landscape recently recognised as UNESCO world heritage site. The walks are recreational motor activities and are not competitive. The participants will always be accompanied by an Environmental Hiking Guide from whom they must never distance themselves for safety reasons.
Initiative organised by Cammini DiVini of Augusto Cavallo in association with the Municipal Administrations of the territories involved in the walk.
