He is the King of Stone of this land: Monviso, a mountain already praised by Virgil and later by Dante, which the Romans took for the roof of the world.
It is a king with a familiar and distinctive profile, a perfect pyramid that stands out against the sky and soars unexpectedly from the crown of the Cottian Alps, thus remaining an eternal point of reference for the plain of the Po River. With its 3,841 m a.s.l. it is the last steep upsurge, the last striving for the clouds of a mountain chain that descends to the sea.
On these pages you will find many valuable suggestions that with a slow and natural rhythm will lead you to discover the thousand facets of this rich and varied territory of the Monviso Valleys.
