MAP OF VILLAMIROGLIO (updated June 22,2012)
Detailed map of the City of Villamiroglio created by Villamiroglio in Foto. Shows roads, trails used and unused, streets, waterways, including seasonal and points of interest. This map is the result of the union of data taken from three different maps and partly from the direct observation of the territory, many of the trails can be no longer practicable or just partially, this map is therefore to be understood only as a tool for orientation of the territory, and it's NOT an appropriate tool to hiking. For more detailed information on the major paths refer to the maps of the trails below.
Are now also available 2
brochures of suggested
paths and a brochure of the
devotional signs in PDF
format. The files show the paths of Villamiroglio
more feasible, those of Monte Bric and Monte Croce,
and a list of Devotional signs (chapels, niches, etc
...) of the town, and are designed to be printed in
the two fold brochure format in A4 size (29x21cm).
The paths contain the suggested route map, a list
with photos and brief descriptions of places of
interest marked on the map, alternative paths and a
brief description of the route. Map of the location
and a short list of the signs of devotion are
surveyed in the third. You can save and print the
brochures, or view them via a PC or tablet to your
preference, to bring it easily with you!
Note: all the brochures are now available only in Italian
Suggested paths of the brochure of Villamiroglio in Foto are NOT related to any type of signal present along the paths of Villamiroglio; most of the signals that you may encounter along the paths should refer to the paths of "Camminare il Monferrato", available on www.parcocrea.com, even if the signals have been arbitrarily modified and did not today retraces the original paths from CAI.

Some can be put together and walked on the same day

going around the mountain, which in turn can be
combined to the Stra Mort, or be driven in stages,
as you can do for the hillside of Monte Bric.

- Face walks with suitable clothing for hiking in
the woods and rough terrain also, and perhaps a
supply of water, there are no bars in the woods!
Some trails and river crossings can be very wet in
the rainy seasons, usually in the fall, as the Stra
dì Mort, you may decide to use boots in these cases.
- Follow the trails, paying close attention to where you put your feet, snakes and vipers are not rare !! The snakes are harmless, and usually the noise scares them, but the vipers are poisonous and camouflage themselves, especially in the gray of the dirt road, and if you accidentally crushed on one it could easily bite you, also they like to bask in the sun along the hottest paths, as the south side/east of Monte Croce.
- Where you pass leave only your footprints! If you want to have a picnic or a rest on the grass make sure that there are no dangers in the neighborhood and do not leave anything behind you!
- A walk is not a marathon! Walk slowly and enjoy everything you see and hear. The nature hides endless wonders and surprises!
- If you find any waste pick them up if you can, the environment will be grateful or advice of the presence to those who can go to pick them up.
- If along the way you find impediments or damage (landslides, fallen trees, etc ...) that prevent the passage report them to the municipality of Villamiroglio, in Piazza San Vito 1 (phone 0142/947101) or to the Site by email or on social media.
- Why not bring a pair of binoculars...
- ...or a camera to capture images and memories you want to share with others?
- All the rest leave it where it is!!!
