Canelli – UNESCO World Heritage site in Monferrato

The outstanding underground cathedrals of Contratto and Coppo and the Piedmontese Metodo Classico sparkling wine.

The city of Canelli has a profound cultural patrimony and the influence of Asti and Alessandria over this city became stronger and stronger as time went by. The so-called underground cathedrals, historic cellars that pass under the city for approximately 20 km (12 miles) and disappear on different levels in the viscera of tufa hills, all the way to 32 meters (104 feet underground), thus creating really suggestive scenarios: real masterpieces of engineering and architecture.
