MUSEUM HOUSE IN UPPER VALLE CERVO
Another must-see is amazing Rosazza, with under 100 inhabitants and noble late 19th century architecture associated with the Biella senator Federico Rosazza and architect Giuseppe Maffei, an irresistible destination for those interested in esoteric and masonic symbolism. It’s a good idea to start by visiting the Casa Museo dell’alta Valle Cervo (via Micca 25, Rosazza, tel. 338.3876595) to find out about the origins and history of the local upland communities and their culture.
Panoramas embracing valleys, woodlands and mountains. The area has numerous possibilities for walking, some simple and suitable for all the family, others best left to experienced mountain hikers. The Belvedere, for example, is an easy 90 minute walk, with a number of covered and stairway sections, to the Belvedere della Pila (980 meters asl) with a spectacular view of the valley. Start from the fork in the Panoramica road (1,120 m) and follow the steep narrow surfaced road leading in a few minutes down to Oriomosso, one of the prettiest villages in the area.
