The town built on the confluence of the Ellero and the Tanaro rivers has in the past a strategic importance and was fought for by the marquis of Saluzzo, Ceva and the Monferrato.
Its name, anciently “Alma munito”, became “Bastia” because of the strong walls (“bastioni”, in Italian), nothing of is still standing. In the church of saint Lawrence there’s a wonderful series of frescos.
