ATTENZIONE: lungo i canali si percorrono strade di servizio su sommità arginale non protette pertanto occorre prestare molta attenzione
Circular routes which lead you to finding the Medieval Granges using the towpaths of the waterways. From Santhia’ we reach the village of Crova from where we begin to follow the first part of the extremely long irrigation canal of Asigliano from where we then break away to arrive at the Granges of Darola and Lucedio. From Lucedio, still crossing country paths, we reach the Grange of Castelmerlino and immediately afterwards the village of Leri (unfortunately in a state of complete ruin and desertion). A break for a snack at “La Colombara” restaurant and then we continue on our way along country paths till the Canale Cavour towpath which takes us back home passing through the hamlet of Carpeneto and the village of Tronzano.
Warning: there are service roads along the canals on the top of the banks which are unfenced so please take great care.
