Susa Valley Italy
By Amy Adejokun Amy Adejokun Section editor

Discover Susa Valley

Located in the northwestern part of Piedmont, on the border with the Aosta Valley, the province of Biella is a place where industrial development sits side by side with its beautiful natural surroundings. Parco Burcina, which lies on a hill at the entrance to the town, is a protected area that shows the fruit of the local's hard work. From the 19th century onwards, successive generations of industrialists carried out reforestation and development projects in the park, and today you can see the huge landscaped garden with its rare and exotic plants, that they built there.

The charm of the Special Nature Reserve of Bessa is the outcome, however, of the work of the Vittimuli, a pre-Roman civilisation who searched for gold in this open mine. You can't help but wonder at the mountainous landscape along the Zegna Panoramic Road or in the Alta Valsessera, where, at the heart of the silver fir tree forests, many species of wildlife can be found. During these trips to the countryside, it is not unusual to encounter isolated sanctuaries amid the mountain summits, like Sacro Monte di Oropa. Constructed in a basin at an altitude of 1,200m, and linked to the cult of the Black Virgin, it was revamped in the 17th century by architects like Juvarra, at the request of the House of Savoy. Today, the complex is listed as a World Heritage Site by Unesco.
