Places of Interest in Groscavallo in the Graian Alps

Our hike after leaving the mountains Graian was not over. AHead of us was a lot of discovery. So, let us begin.

The first night after the Alps. We were in a wonderful, magical place that struck us with its cosiness. Pialpetta, Groscavallo, Piemonte, Italy. This is a small Italian village, located in a Groscavallo valley, from both sides of which rise the mountains, the tops of which are not visible through the clouds.

There's a feeling that everyone knows each other, people are very friendly and always ready to help, though do not speak English. Houses are small, and on the balconies of a huge number of flowers. In the air evoking the atmosphere of the feast. In the cafe on the street sitting, chatting and smiling at us people, and we go for a walk. Look around. Our attention was drawn to an old church, with painted on the wall of a sundial, and we even heard the bell ringing. Meanwhile, getting dusk, lights began to light up.

But everything comes to an end, and we go on.
