Romanesque art

From the almost intact ancient villages immersed in the landscape of Langhe and Monferrato to the churches, abbeys and cathedrals widespread throughout the whole territory, Piemonte offers a complete and fascinating overview of Romanesque art in Italy and Europe, with masterpieces of priceless beauty. In the Torino surroundings, along the Francigena Way, the Sacra of San Michele, the sentinel of the Susa Valley, and the Benedictine abbey of San Pietro in Novalesa. The baptistery and the crypt of San Anastasio in Asti is unmissable, together with the churches of San Lorenzo in Montiglio and San Secondo of Cortazzone, as well as the splendid frescoes of the Abbey of Vezzolano. In the province of Cuneo, the extraordinary acoustics of the Staffarda abbey deserves a true surprise, whereas you will be conquered by the silent atmosphere of the San Nazario and Celso abbey, in the Vercelli area, and the Saint Giustina of Sezzadio abbey, in the province of Alessandria. A beautiful experience will be also the visit at the baptisteries of Biella and Novara.
