tematic area - Discovering the Rocche

Canyons and ravines, pinnacles and sandy cliff faces that pass through Roero soft hills for 35 km. Rocche are a geologic erosion phenomenon that originates in the mists of times and today still continues to influence our lives. The Ecomuseum of the Rocche of Roero has activated a network of thematic paths that delve into Rocche ecosystem and permit to discover the environmental varieties, the cultivations and the traditions of the Roero.

To discover panoramas and wild nature of Rocche you can:
- Book an exciting hiking tour with a naturalistic guide, to find out where fossils hide under the soil, to identify wild animals tracks and to learn the botanic species of Roero.

- Go independently along the Ecomuseum Paths with a GPS audioguide which tells you the peculiar theme of the trail, botany or fauna characteristics, local legends and story-tellings. Together with the audioguide you’ll receive the complete map of Roero Trail Network.
