Itinerary

Itenirary
Departure from Inzago by GT coach (time to be determined)
Arrival in Fubine. The tour begins with the Bricherasio Chapel, built by Cav. Luigi di Bricherasio in a small and picturesque clearing, preserves inside one of the most beautiful works of the great sculptor Leonardo Bistolfi. This is followed by the Bricherasio Palace, the castle from whose roof garden you can admire breathtaking landscapes, and the parish church of Santa Maria Assunta. With a walk along the Spalto, one of the most picturesque places in the village, where ancient walls remain as evidence of the defensive walls, the infernot trail begins. These are underground chambers carved out of the area's typical sandstone, canton stone.Due to the special geological characteristics of this marine-derived soil, infernots maintain constant temperature and humidity and therefore were used for food storage as an adjunct to wine cellars. They are precious legacies of peasant tradition, small hidden treasures recognized as world heritage.
