Saluzzo’s gastronomy is very various and diverse. First, we find excellent quality meats such as Saluzzo’s white chicken, a breed also enhanced by a “slow food” presidium.
Saluzzo’s territory boasts the presence of a high number of fruit and vegetable growers, in particular, apples, pears, kiwis and wine growers that produce a particular type of wine such as Pelaverga. Among the traditional desserts, the most popular are the “saluzzesi with rhum”.
What to do
Saluzzo has numerous ideal routes for those who love walking and cycling, including the itineraries of “Saluzzese in bici”, a set of 10 itineraries between the plain and hills.
“La camminata del marchesato” (the walk of the marquisate) is ideal for fit-walking enthusiasts.
Between July and August, the “Occit’amo” festival of the lands of Monviso and surrounding Occitan valleys has the ambitious goal of recreating the magical atmosphere with a combination of popular,
ethnic and traditional music and the charm of art treasures scattered in churches and chapels, among the Po, Stura, Infernotto, Varaita, Maira and Grana valleys.
