Treiso

Overview

Between history and legend

The history of Treiso has its roots in ancient Rome, when the stone marking the third mile of the Magistra Langarum road connecting Alba Pompeia to Provence was located here. Today, evidence of the past of this small village in the Langhe can be found in ancient buildings, such as the Baroque-style parish Church of the Beata Vergine Assunta.

But recent history has marked the face of Treiso. Its territory was the scene of partisan struggles during World War II, as recounted by Beppe Fenoglio in his masterpiece, Il partigiano Johnny. Pylon chapels are dedicated to the fallen of the Resistance.

In Treiso, you can feel history, but also legend. Near the town centre is a large karstic chasm, the Rocche dei Sette Fratelli. According to folk tales, it was here that seven brothers one day railed against their sister who brought them a poor breakfast, and against God who, to punish them, opened a chasm immediately swallowing them up.
