TERRITORY

As you can see entering the town, Cherasco is a “little town, big for its art, history and culture”… An important part of Cherasco’s history was written by Napoleon Bonaparte, who, on 28th April 1796, stayed in Cherasco to sign the armistice between Napoleonic and Piedmont’s troops.

Cherasco, a town rich in history. The antique Roman walls were about one mile long and protected the town, called “Clarascum”. After becoming an imperial town, Cherasco lived its golden age in the 16th and 17th centuries, when it was supplied with walls and hosted the Ducal Court. Furthermore, in 1631 Cherasco was chosen by Vittorio Amedeo I of Savoy as the place where to sign the peace treaty to end the war of succession for the Dukedom of Mantua.

Cherasco retains a lot of its original characteristics. Buildings with precious interiors, courtyards, walls and monuments frame the 16th-century Visconti Castle, Salmatoris Palace, the Belvedere Arch, the town’s Tower, the Triumphal Arch and the Narzole Archway.

A lot of activities are promoted throughout the year, like the Antiques Market, that takes place several times a year, and the historic re-enactment of Napoleon’s visit. Cherasco also hosts the International Institute of Snail-Breeding (“Elicicultura”).
