Trekking - Roero

Belvedere Walk

"Hawthorns bloom in front of the sanctuary in January, and this is the acknowledged miraculous sign, that has brought prayers and devotion. In the name of Our Lady of the Flowers, the Cuneo peasants prayed, worshipped, sang and lit bonfires on the night of 8th September. And my Caterina was invoking the Virgin Mary for everything: the hail, the fury of the heavens, the dying pig, the lost rabbit, the corn that would result in little polenta […]. I remember Caterina kneeling in the courtyard praying for the salvation of an ailing goose or for hailstones not to destroy my family's vineyards".
G. Arpino, “La Madonna dei Fiori”  

The starting point is near the Santuario della Madonna dei Fiori (Sanctuary of Our Lady of the Flowers), a place of devotion so dear to the people of Bra. Near the traffic lights, turn onto Strada San Matteo and climb up until you reach a votive pillar with a small rest area. Here you can continue along the road or you can turn left up the steps. A little further up, you will come to the junction to Strada Gandini where you turn and walk on until you come to a playground area.

You turn right onto Strada Tetti Bona and reach the homonymous hamlet, then continue on the main road that changes its name to Strada Castelletto and, after a short downhill stretch, at the end of a retaining wall, turn right onto the Sentiero Gariglio (Gariglio trail), which is suitable for MTB. Walk through the forest until you reach Strada Gariglio, get back onto the asphalt road and follow it until you reach Strada San Michele.

From here you descend to the right, reach the junction to Via Craveri and turn right onto Via Ospedale, which you follow up to the traffic lights. Turn right again and continue along Viale Madonna dei Fiori, towards the Sanctuary, to go back to the starting point.
