Roascio

It became authonomous at the beginning of the twentieth century, and is now one of the smallest towns in the Langhe.

Of the old castle, only the tower (transformed into the parish church’s bell tower in the eighteenth century) is still standing. The rest of the castle was used to build the parish church, dedicated to the Immacolata.

Still evident are the traces of the galleries that belonged to the fort of Ceva, built in the XVI-XVII century for Carlo Emanuele II Savoia. After many events and battles, the fort was knocked down by Napoleon.

Interesting are some farms built in sandstone and the chapel of san Grato, built on the hill in front of the fort.

The patronal fair is held on the day of san Giovanni.

History

In the church of Roascio there’s a Roman tombstone, maybe showing that the place was already inhabited during the imperial period.

But the town is first referred to only in 1050, when it was owned by the Del Carretto family. Later, it became a property of the Cordero di Pamparato family.
