Pocapaglia

Pocapaglia is surrounded by one of the most beautiful views of the Roero: the “Rocche”, whose wild looks have originated endless legends and myths.

On the portal of the castle that dominates the town are carved some war symbols, traditionally related to Sansovino.

Among the other monuments, interesting are the baroque church of sant’Agostino and the little church of san Giorgio, probably built by the Longobards.

History

Pocapaglia was first owned by the bishop of Asti, then by the Falletti family (since 1300), who bought the Breme abbey and owned the town until the family ended in 1748.
