Walk in Fey

«The people of Bra used to smuggle meat, walking up and down the banks and woods from Pocapaglia to Bra, at night, with veal legs on their backs and pigs and quarters of ox, those of the duty were waiting for them at the top of the hill of Bra, hidden on the plateau of the Zizzola, like witches and masche».
G. Arpino, “Cronaca breve del bosco” – da “Regina di Cuoi” (Araba Fenice, 1989)

The starting point is Palazzo Mathis, in Piazza Caduti per la Libertà, opposite the tourist office. From here you walk up Via Serra, passing by the ancient Palazzo Traversa, home to Bra's Archaeological and Historical/Artistic Museum.

You reach the junction with Via Santa Maria del Castello, and turn right past the homonymous chapel. Continue on to the junction with Strada Fey, where instead of climbing up towards La Zizzola, you descend to the right. At house number 10/A, near a fork (lighting pole in the middle), keep left. You will then continue until you reach the junction with Strada Montenero, cross it to continue on Strada Fey, go past the level crossing and reach the little church of Fey, that is dedicated to the Holy Name of Mary.

Then, just before reaching a votive pillar with a picnic area, turn left onto Strada Moreis, pass under the bridge and continue straight ahead until you turn onto Strada Marie (dirt road at an electricity pole). Continue along this path, which after an initial stretch becomes asphalted again, and climb up to the junction with Strada San Michele, near the Church of San Michele Arcangelo.

Once you are there, keep to the left and descend towards the centre of Bra until you reach a crossroads where, still keeping to the left, you enter Via Craveri. Along the way you will come across the Craveri Natural History Museum. At the end of the street, near the Church of Santa Chiara, turn right onto Via Barbacana and descend to return to the starting point in Piazza Caduti per la Libertà.
