Piedmont and its beauties

A trip to the heart of Piedmont is truly for everyone: perfect for a romantic weekend, for the family looking for fun and relaxation, for the curious traveler who wants to discover a new flat area but with Monterosa in the background.

Here the still intact nature of the rice fields offers a showcase of unmistakable landscapes, where the gaze starts from the mountains, glimpses the hills and ends up on the wonderful views of the plain.

In our village life still flows slowly, even if it is a few kilometers from the city.
Walking through the streets you will find the shops, you will meet the farmers, you will taste the typical traditional flavors and you will rest in a very sweet regenerating silence.

History and Ancient Traditions
 

AMY B&B is located in the historic center of Asigliano, a small historic town in the lower Vercelli area, famous for its very old and traditional Ox Race.

A vow that is dissolved every year, every second Sunday of May, in honor of the Patron Saint, San Vittore.

The popular rumor says that a local plague in 1436 brought death and desolation in the town; its desperate inhabitants asked the patron Saint Vittore for mercy with the promise to make the slowest animals, the oxen, run as a sign of joy and gratitude.

 

The Saint answered the prayers and the plague ceased. Since then every year on the second Sunday of May,four pairs of oxen, led by young charioteers, run along a stretch (about 300 meters) of viale Garibaldi.

Thousands of years of evolution, technology and progress and in the end the sunset remains the most beautiful thing of all.
