«Monastero - da Monesté - la singolare terra posta fra il Monferrato e le Langhe, che tiene il castello in basso ed il borgo in alto alla viceversa di tutte l'altre vicine: ma il castello a primo primis era un monastero, e la torre un campanile, e quel casone lassù lo chiamavan tuttora "il convento", e su per la Tatorba certe macerie tra i rovi sono gli avanzi - dicono - di un ritiro di donne e nel sangue della gente qualcosa n'è rimasto» Augusto Monti "I Sansossì" (Gli Spensierati)

This panorama was taken in Langhe & Roero

This is an overview of Langhe & Roero

Tanaro river flows between these two hilly areas and separates them: the Langhe lie to the south and east of the river, Roero to the north.

The town of Alba can be considered the cultural and economic capital of both territories famous for their wines, cheeses and truffles. A large number of medieval and baroque castles punctuate the surrounding hills.

Two of the greatest Italian writers of the 20th century were born in this area: the stories of Beppe Fenoglio and Cesare Pavese are inextricably linked to the history among these hills of anti-fascist resistance.
