The province of Asti is divided into Lower and Upper Monferrato. Cossombrato is located in Monferrato, gentle slopes, on which stand out the vineyards but also small fresh and shady valleys, forests, ancient castles and Romanesque churches of absolute historical and architectural significance. The Upper Monferrato or Langa of Asti instead is characterized by medieval villages and fascinating geological layers, by rugged terrain and plants and animals typical of the Mediterranean climate.
The path between “the Holy Lands” through Castelnuovo Don Bosco, the birthplace of St. John Bosco. To the east the rolling hills enclose the path that leads from Portacomaro to Moncalvo, the smallest city in Italy that offers beautiful monuments, such as the Castle of Montemagno, Romanesque and the paintings of the late Mannerist Hunting.
Finally we recommend a visit to the ethnographic museum of Cisterna and the historic center of San Damiano, to the sites of the Eco-museum, the Museum of Plaster of Montafia and Moncucco representing an excellent opportunity to learn more about the farming communities of the Lower Monferrato.
