Asti Langa

Gorrino village

in Pezzolo Valle Uzzone

Pezzolo Valle Uzzone is ver yrich in traces of the past, thanks to the many country chapels around it. But the best thing to see is a gothic village, still unchanged though no longer used for people to live in.

It’s called Gorrino; it once was a regular commune, though today only a few people live there. Onth elittle square there’s a beautiful church dedicated to saint Peter. Near it there’s the castle, to which it’s connected by a covered gallery that alowed the nobles to go to Mass without having to walk with the people.

The walls of the castle still bear the signs of the different steps of the building activity; bor as a defenxive building, it was then transformed in a house.

Beautiful is the little street that goes all through the village, then round it, then again to the arch of the main entrance.
