The Ricetto fortress of Candelo


We are in the region of Piedmont, five kilometers away from the city of Biella.The medieval village of Ricetto di Candelo is located in this area, representing of the one hundred most beautiful villages in Italy. The houses of peasants have been perfectly preserved since the Middle Ages until today thanks to the commitment of the owners; entering the village feels like a journey back in time to 1300. Along the lanes (or alleys) of Ricetto the visitors can still find the artisans' workshops of traditional crafts.
