Three kilometers far from La Morra, on the road to Alba, there’s the beautiful Annunziata village. There it’s possible to see the romanic-baroque benedictine abbey of saint Martin of Mercenasco: a church with a facade of the seventeenth century, the apse and a bell tower of the XV century. The restoring have uncovered some of the primitive columns inside, with their stone bases, and a Roman tombstone from the I century a.C. #lamorra #langhe #barolo #piedmont #italy

County culture has ever considered hazel-trees as magic: its bush was believed to be a den for witches or fairies, a rich harvest was a sign of fertility for the family,while a hazel-tree stick was the dowsing-rod. Hazel-trees were also largely used in medicine, so much that the symbol of god Esculapio – and of today’s pharmacists – is a branch of hazel-tree with two snakes coiled around it. #hazelnuts #langhe #langa

Bergolo

Bergolo is one of the smallest villages of the Langhe (and one of the smallest of the whole Italy) was one of the first to realize how this territory could be touristically important, and to build modern accommodating and recreational facilities. The town is also called “stone town”: all houses have been restored using local sandstone, and the roads have been remade in paving. Such an homogeneity is difficult to find in other places. #altalanga #italy #piedmont #travel #rustic #stone
