Val di Susa is certainly one of the most beautiful valleys in Piedmont. Here we find Avigliana, inserted in the characteristic Lakes Natural Park, with its great variety of fauna and flowers to be discovered and admired.
However, the purpose of establishing this park was not only to preserve the territory and the animal and plant specimens found there, but also to integrate nature and the everyday life of the local population. This is why numerous paths have been set up, learning structures such as the eco-museum of fishing, maps and itineraries thus offering inhabitants and travelers a unique experience.
The park is located in a characteristic area of the moraine amphitheater, dating back to the last two great prehistoric glaciations. Located just 25 kilometers from Turin, the Avigliana Lakes Natural Park is an excellent destination for a trip out of the chaos of city life.
The Avigliana lakes are very old. They were in fact formed during the last two great prehistoric glaciations (one occurred 230,000 and the other 120,000 years ago).
These two lakes are at the center of the Natural Park, which, in addition to offering a great variety of fauna (volatile in particular, for bird-watching enthusiasts) offer a splendid panorama made of magnificent colors that change at different times of the day.
If you are looking for a place in the surroundings of Turin where you can spend a few days immersed in nature, this natural park will surely surprise you.
And to complete your trip in this area of the lower Val di Susa we recommend a visit to the medieval historic center of Avigliana. Small treasure in Val di Susa that will amaze you with its silences and suggestive views. Many things to see such as the splendid medieval castle, the Clock Tower and the Gothic style church of San Pietro.
For your fun and sport, less than 4 km from the structure, golf lovers will find the “Le Fronde” golf course (18 holes) and then many equestrian centers always in the immediate vicinity.
For lovers of water sports, possibility of acquiring nautical licenses at the Sailing Center on Lake Avigliana.
In short, it is worth taking a trip around here!
