The nature park Parco naturale Val Troncea is located in Val Chisone, municipality of Pragelato in the Metropolitan City of Turin. The park was created in 1980 to preserve the natural environment.
The park is located between 1670 AMSL and 3.280 m AMSL. The highest point is the peak of the mountain Punta Rognosa di Sestriere. The river Chisone seeps at the very end of the valley, at the foot of Monte Barifreddo and runs through it until it reaches the river Pellice.
The nature park has a lot of hiking paths, both linking the different hamlets with each other, or the bottom of the valley with the mountains' peaks.
LandmarksIn the park can still be found old hamlets, representing the valley´s lifestyle and architecture: Laval - 1.667 m Seytes - 1.919 m Troncea - 1.915 m Jussaud - 1.786 m Alpe Mei
Alpe Mei is located at the end of the valley and is inhabited just in summer. It can be reached within a two-hour walk. The shepherds produce and sell typical mountain cheese such as ricotta and toma.

  • Just wonderful. Beautiful flowers. Easily accessible by motorbike and by car. Recommended for pick nick families. There are also very good places to eat around. I'll be back
  • A nice relaxing and invigorating walk
  • Champlas janvier, a small village with a few houses, made of stone, some renovated. Here everything and everyone are free: dogs and cows included. The very hospitable inhabitants of San Carlo organize a country party to entertain local children and tourists. The sack race, relay race, tug-of-war and the pot. With a lot of mayors for the awards ... cups, medals, caps and other gadgets for everyone. A small church, that of San Carlo very old (I think of 1100d.c) internally and totally covered in wood. Very beautiful. And all day long, starting in the late morning, all gofri x, seasoned with sweet or savory; soft drinks, beer. With a small offer at discretion. Already in the morning entertainment with the guys from the ludobus and their wooden games suitable from 0 to 99 years. Beautiful day.
  • Rustic, very green and pleasant environment.
