What to expect

Take part in a unique experience and discover the infernot: a hive of tiny underground rooms dug in raw earth several meters deep into the ground of the farmsteads and houses of the Monferrato villages. Masterpieces of rural engineering that have been the ideal place to store wine for many generations. In the course of your day, you'll have the chance to dive deep into the fascinating tradition and legends of this region and its architectural wonder.

Your trip will begin in the village of Ozzano Monferrato, where you'll have the opportunity to visit the Castle’s Gardens, a true Italian "hanging garden", one of the few still present in Piedmont.

Then you'll continue on with a visit to Cella Monte and its inferont: with your guide, you'll descend into the small rooms and learn all about the history of this strange and fascinating place. Cella Monte is also home to the “Museo della Pietra da Cantoni” where you can find curiosities and stories related to this particular stone, with which the entire historic center of the town was built.
