Tower of "Contini" in Canelli
Langhe & Roero

L'antica "torre dei Contini" di Canelli un tempo segnava i confini della città. Si trova in uno punto panoramico della frazione Santa Libera, alla torre si può accedere liberamente attraverso una bellissima stradina immersa nei vigneti. Dalla torre si gode di un'incantevole panorama che per 360 gradi spazia su vigneti (prevalentemente a Moscato) a cui fanno da sfondo da un lato le Alpi e dall'altro l'Appennino ligure.

More About 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.
