Trekking - Langa del Moscato - Castiglione Tinella

Bruno Arione Path

Leave the main square and the large Church passing in front of the old Parish Church of St. Andrea, then cross a short stretch of the old historic centre and leave the village along a north-easterly direction with wide open views towards the Monferrato and Hamlet San Martino below; on the road that leads to Santo Stefano Belbo you meet the little rural Church of San Bovo and take the ups and downs that get you to the dirt road leading into the wood.

Go through the back of the hill that is home to the Moscato vineyards to dive then into the bush in a brushwood. After crossing two small rivers, please note the majestic Poplar, then the path goes up through Downey Oaks, Hazels, Chestnuts and False Acacias. Even on the plateau the wood has the same look and occasionally it is embellished by some Scots pines and, during the spring, is easy to admire some varieties of orchids, in particular the spotted-Orchid, and ahead the surprise is a beautiful meadow surrounded by woods.

Coming out from the Bosco delle Badie, the road continues on the hill of San Carlo, admiring at the bottom left a panoramic view of great charm with the Rocks and the Moscato vineyards with their arduous location. The area located ahead offers an enchanting view over the village of Castiglione Tinella and over a vast area dotted with numerous other villages that extends all way around.

Going down again you see in front of you the rural Church of San Carlo, which is reached by an uphill road. Even from the church, you can enjoy a splendid view over the Monferrato towards the north and on Alba area and Roero, with the mountain range of the Alps, in the west background. The road descends into the village among the trees until reaching of a meadow. At the end, you reach the houses of the village that stretch up towards the square where you can find the starting point.
