Lequio Tanaro

In the big central square, dedicated to senator Giacomo Curreno from Santa Maddalena, there are buildings of great historical and artistic relevance.

We point out the parish church: its facade is a mixture of Classic and Baroque style, which dates back to end of the 18th century, beginning of the 19th.

The Battuti Bianchi brotherhood dates back to the same period.

You can still see the coat of arms on the façade of Salmatoris Palace.

The main activity in Lequio is agriculture, with mixed cultivations of vine, wheat, maize and beans.

In the woods you can find fine white truffles, as well as excellent mushrooms.

The patronal fair is on the third Sunday of October.

History

The name comes probably from Latin “locus quietis” (calm place): the Romans built many villas there, because of the wonderful view and the peacefulness of the place.
