Specialty Museums · Outdoor Activities · Forests
Alagna Valsesia is a comune and small village high in the Valsesia alpine valley in the province of Vercelli, Piedmont, Italy, a UNESCO World heritage site since 2013. It is a tourist place for mountaineering and winter sports, and it is internationally renowned for the freeride off-piste skiing. It was originally settled by Walser at the beginning of 12th century. It is located at an elevation of 1191m just south of the Monte Rosa, elevation 4638m ; It is very close to Milan and to the international Milan–Malpensa Airport .Since December 2005 a cable car connects Alagna with Gressoney through the Passo dei Salati.HistoryFounded in the 13th century by a German population descending from the north into the Italian valleys around Monte Rosa, it has preserved today its atmosphere with several buildings built around 1500 - 1600 in a pure "Walser Style", still in perfect condition, built using local wood and stones . This spontaneous architecture has been totally preserved: the wooden cage around the building was in fact invented for putting the hay to dry out.
