Treiso Pathways

Located in the heart of Barbaresco Langa, Treiso stands at the junction of five hills. The village name derives from the Latin Tres or Terzius (the ancient Latin word for “third”): it was the village at the third milestone on the magistra Langarum (the ancient Latin word for “main road to Langhe”) road from Alba Pompeia to Gallia Transalpina (Transalpine Gaul). In the Ancient Roman age, Treiso was a vacation place for noble people who rested and relaxed in the hill fresh air away from hot Alba Pompeia. The monument village inhabitants are proud of is made of vineyards – created, cultivated with care and love by peasants, true artists and artisans from a noble thousand-year-old art. The Rocche dei sette fratelli (literally the seven brothers’ cliffs) are definitely worth visiting – a large amphitheatre made of deep ravines, resulting from intensive water erosion of friable walls made of compact marls. The ravine – characterised by several detected badlands – had originated a religious legend: badlands were the marks of God’s anger for the seven peasant brothers’ poor faith.

Visitors can enjoy the local landscape and fascinating hills walking along the well signposted trails. Hikers can enjoy 4 trails within Treiso territory and a fifth regional trail, which takes hikers from Treiso to Neive and Neviglie.
