How many times would you have liked to visit a church that you came across by chance during a hike in the woods, or in the mountains, but found the doors closed and no one around that you could ask for information?
For some years now, thanks to "Chiese a porte aperte-Città e cattedrali" (Churches with open doors-Cities and cathedrals) founded by the Consulta per i beni culturali ecclesiastici del Piemonte e Valle d'Aosta (Council for the ecclesiastical cultural heritage of Piedmont and the Aosta Valley), hundreds of small and large artistic gems scattered across the mountains and hills of Piedmont can be visited through a simple app that is downloadable from AppStore and GooglePlay.
And, as of today, a number of them are connected by eight itineraries for cycling or walking in the provinces of Turin, Asti and Cuneo to bring tourism, the outdoors, art and spirituality together. This way, the innovative opportunity to visit churches and chapels of artistic value by yourself becomes a thematic tourist attraction through Piemontescape, the regional portal for outdoor tourism.
