Saluzzo, an ancient capital at the foot of Monviso from which the longest river in Italy originates: the Po.
Saluzzo, is located in a scenario dominated by the preeminence of the Monviso massif.
Ancient capital of the Marquisate of the same name, it looks like a city of typically medieval origins: cobbled streets and squares, narrow stairways, ancient churches and elegant noble palaces with their gardens make up the fabric of the historic centre.
Do not miss a visit to the (upper) medieval part in which Castiglia, the Church of San Giovanni with the adjacent Cloister, as well as the Civic Museum located inside Casa Cavassa stand out. Just 4 km away, a visit to the Castello della Manta is worth the detour.
