Camminare il Monferrato, the well-known walking event, organised by the municipalities of Monferrato, promoted by Riserva Speciale del Sacro Monte di Crea, the Ecomuseum of Cantoni Stone, CAI of Casale Monferrato and with the sponsorship of the newspaper "Il Monferrato", will be in GABIANO on Sunday 18 October. The itinerary proposed will be brand-new, entitled "I due Belvedere" to offer new ideas and new scenic views of Basso Monferrato (Northern part of Monferrato). Departure from the Square beside the Town hall at 3 pm, meet at 2.30 pm. Participants will be welcomed by the Mayor DOMENICO Priora, who designed the route and will outline the programme of the day. Having left the point of departure, which is the first "Belvedere" on the Cerrina Valley and on its woody hills, we will descend under the ramparts onto Strada Vecchio Mercato delle Bestie and then onto the road known as Bosco di San Biagio, to reach the area called Piano della Ghiaia. A section among municipal poplar groves until we meet the road, which leads to Cantavenna. We will climb to the village reaching the new "Belvedere" on the River Po which looks towards the rice plain. Further on, we will take the Cammino delle Rocche and descend onto Rocche del Po as far as the road for Rocca delle Donne. From here, on the communal road, we will reach the town of Cantavenna once more and easily return to Gabiano where our walk will end.
