Jocelyn CARUANAVery nice fortified town. For the visit of the fort, view photos, depending on the period, schedules varied if you want to get into the moat, you will find a small passage through the top of the village ;-)
Oriana michelettiHistorical place, on the road from Demonte to colle della Maddalena. Beautiful Christmas markets and the event is dancing with wild boars. In summer possibility to swim in the pond.
Claudia Ciuraru CucuHuge. The Museum can be visited by yourself while visiting the Fort is headed. There are a lot of steps.
Alberto BrignoneBeautiful building to visit if you pass in Stura Valley, well worth the effort. Often the municipality adds a set of themed events that make the whole thing much nicer.
