The Langa of Asti

Outermost part of the province of Asti, almost on the border with Liguria, the Langa of Asti is a territory of great fascination in many ways: the altitude of its hills where the vineyards gradually end in favour of hazel tree plantations, to pasture and to woodland, the climate that begins to be affected by the vicinity of the sea and allows the flourishing presence of plants such as the broom and rare orchids, its little medieval villages and the ancient look-out towers erected, according to custom, to forewarn of Saracen invasions. The area is covered also by panoramic roads and paths for travelling by foot, on mountain-bike or on horseback.
