TURISMO NELLE ALPI LIGURI ASSOCIATION wishes to introduce you to a territory which may be considered unique and different if compared to all the others you may know. The reason is that all territories in the Cuneo area have no ways straight to the sea, being often more bound to the northern side of our regional mountains; all except one, that forms a great curve and runs parallel to the coast.
We are talking about a middle earth that offers alpine sceneries and mountain traditions from one side but also wonderful landscapes, heritage and culture which comes from the seaside; in fact the Ligurian Alps extend parallel to the Riviera.
They have a north side with narrow valleys overlooking the plains and a large, sunny south side where the Alta Val Tanaro ows from west to east.
This feature makes the south side like an alpine balcony overlooking the sea.
A very important feature is that all the peaks, just below 2700 meters, are easily reachable in a day, differently from other places here around where many tours are too long.
Moreover, a network of 6 mountain huts allows you to share beautiful crossings.
The valley, with its sunny location, had in the past a very large population, distributed in dozens of small villages and this left a dense network of paths and roads, a rich cuisine based on local mountain products often inuenced by the flavors of nearby Liguria.
