Cruising around Monferrato Lowlands is like traveling back into the past, for two main reasons. Firstly for its Medieval treasures: many architectural jewels from the Middle Age, duly preserved from arbitrary “refurbishments” , can be admired in the area, such as the Abbey of Vezzolano, the Church of Montiglio, and the Sanctuary of Crea.
Secondly, since man gave up exploiting the area for production activities, nature has begun to progressively recover the land, slowly re-building the lost ecosystem. An environment that harmoniously combines biodiversity, gentle leafy landscapes, and the work of man in the form of an abbey or a little village nested on a hill.
