Lequio Berria

Lequio Berria is built in a winderful panoramic position, from which it’s possible to see many towns of the Langhe on the surrounding hills.

In the town, apart from the parish church of saint Lawrence on the main square, there is also the Oratorio di San Rocco, where there are some frescos uncovered in the ‘70s.

Worth a visit is the sanctuary of the Madonna della Neve, on the road to Borgomale.

The patronal fair takes place every first Sunday in August.

History

The name Lequio Berra comes from the English word “leak”, maybe because the town was strategically built in a place suitable for controlling the surrounding territories and the armies who passed there.

Already referred to at the beginning of the year 1000 in a diploma by the Emperor Ottone III, it had a long and difficult history.

In 1601 it became a part of the property of Carlo Emanuele I di Savoia. In the same century a majestic castle was built, of which no traces are left.
