FROM MUZZANO TO TRAPPA
BETWEEN MOUNTAINS, MULETRACKS AND IRRIGATION DITCHES

La Trappa is an imposing stone structure. Even if the origins are not clear, it owes its name to a congregation of friars called “Trappist” living in the area. It is situated in a spectacular location under the Biella Alps. This paths includes a fascinating walk along the original molar canal until the captation point of the ditch. The route is varied and presents no difficulties.

The Morainic Amphitheater of Ivrea is the result of a geological phenomenon dating back to the Quaternary that gave rise to unique and fascinating natural formations.  The longest moraine in Europe, the “Serra” is located in this area. This alluvial gold deposit was triggered for the first time 2000 years ago, and it represents the first intensive mining exploitation, creating the largest open pit mine in the history. We can now admire as a result a charming and nostalgic landscape with a huge pile of pebbles, today called “La Bessa”.

TREKKING AMONG MORAINS AND PEBBLES

This itinerary involves one of Europe’s most authentic natural sites. It could lead with a detour to the so called “Castelliere of Mongrando”, an enigmatic construction, discussed and controversial.

The excursion can vary in terms of duration and difficulty, always allowing an overall view of the site both from a historical and natural point of view.
