Arguello

The town, inhabited by 150 people, is the smallest Italian commune; it’s made by a few houses gathered around the parish church of the Guardian Angels.

The town was built in this place because of its strategic relevance, as shown by the ruins of the casel, on a hill over the Belbo valley.

Arguello is often called “the commune of the cuckoo”, because it’s so silent and calm that it’s easy to hear the bird’s singing at night.
