Roccasparvera / Must do

From a naturalistic point of view, the habitat that characterized and well identifies the Roccasparvera territory is represented by the luxuriant woods of centuries-old chestnut trees, ideal places for easy excursions, particularly advisable even in winter, taking advantage of the sunniest exposure.

An easy walk, which crosses the centre of the town touching the characteristic point and historical and cultural interest (churches, chapels, ancient fountains...), leads to the highest point of the Castle (now largely ruined) from which you can enjoy a beautiful view if the valley, in particular, on the “Forre dell’Olla”, the characteristic bights that here forms the Stura River. This path of about 2 km has recently been enhanced with the insertion of illustrative panels that through the figure of Franceschino Bolleris, the lord of Roccasparvera in 1373, entertain the little ones through enigmas and stories of wizards, dragons, ladies and knights. The route, suitable for families, is divided in two: the first part winds between the town center and the castle, the second part is located in the hamlet of Castelletto.

The ex-military road is very suggestive to walk or bike, it passes from Vignolo behind Roccasparvera, at the foot of the chestnut woods, to Gaiola. For cycling tourism lovers, Roccasparvera is also interested in the paths of the Gesso and Stura River Park, of which it is part, and in the itineraries of the Bike Park Tajarè.
