An extension of gentle hills as far as the eye can see, speckled by ancient hamlets, majestic castles and high bell towers. A magic wavy landscape made precious by a variety of colour shades generated by the spontaneous vegetation and the vineyards surrounded by the Alps in the background.
A land of household wines with an outstanding cuisine, but also with historical and cultural roots in the province of Cuneo, ranked among the most active and productive in the Piedmont region.
Placed in the centre of a natural valley, Dogliani always surprises and amazes visitors.
A vast and assorted territory deserves to be discovered with its particularities and authenticities; an unequalled panorama created by the endless mild landscapes, gentle hills, wide valleys framing the lines of the vineyards. Countless pieces of art, culture and hundreds of years of traditions.
Above all wine represents the most precious suggestion of this generous land that knows how to pair and highlight its typical cuisine, rich of unique and unforgettable flavours. For instance the truffle and other products, which deserve to be discovered and tasted in a cosy atmosphere typical of the farmers’ hospitality.
NOT TO BE MISSED
Panoramic point of extraordinary beauty from where it is possible to observe the centre of Dogliani and the Rea Valley. From there you may admire the impressive shape of the Civic Tower and the Castle of Perno.
The Town Hall
The official date of the first stone being laid dates back to 26th August 1480. It hosts the town hall, the historic-archeologic Museum “G. Gabetti” and the Consortium “Bottega del Vino”.
The Civic Tower
The formerly so-called Clock Tower, was built in primeval age (XII century).
Defensive Tower and the Perno of Caldera Family’s Fortified Palace
The massive tower called in ancient times “Torrazzo”, partially maintains its original structure of the medieval age, whereas the Perno family’s palace dates back to XVI century.
Photographic Museum about Luigi Einaudi
Dedicated to the President of the Italian Republic and famous economist. His philosophy reported on the picture captions are disconcertingly actual.
Parish Church of Santi Quirico and Paul
The main building was made by Giovan Battista Schellino. Built in neoclassical style with a Greek cross, the church hosts many artistic masterpieces, such as paintings of the XVI, XVII, XVIII and XIX centuries, Brilla’s wooden statues and Gaetano Previati’s Way of the Cross.
Sanctuary of Madonna delle Grazie and the Pillars of the Rosary
Located on the provincial road connecting the towns of Dogliani and Murazzano, the Sanctuary stands on a hill, offering a marvellous panoramic view where, in the 15th century, a small chapel dedicated to the Devine Maternity of Virgin Mary formerly existed. Thanks to its devotion to Virgin Mary the chapel was later turned into a sanctuary and then, from the second half of the 18th century, continuously developed and adorned by architect Schellino.
The Sanctuary is the fifteenth and the last Station of the Cross, the so-called “Pillars of the Rosary”. Designed in 1872 by architect Schellino himself, the 14 votive pillars representing Jesus’ life twist and turn along the road, connecting the graveyard at Borgo Castello to the Sanctuary.
