Clavesana

Artistically relevant are the majestic castle, that dominates the Tanaro valley, and the eighteenth-century parish church dedicated to saint Michael.

Clavesana is an important wine-making town, and is currently rediscovering its touristical potentials, thanks to the truffles and hazelnuts.

The most important happening is the fair of the Madonna della Neve in August.

History

Before the Roman conquest, the town was inhabited by the Liguri Bagenni tribe.

Once the Roman empire had fallen, it was controlled by the Aleramici; one of them, Hugh, chose the top of this hill as a home, chiefly because it was easy to defend, thanks to its tall and steep sides.

Later, in the fifteenth century, the republic of Genova and the marquis of Saluzzo fought over it for a long time, until the Savoia made it a feud for different allied families of theirs.
