Directions

Come and discover Chianale, one of the most beautiful villages in Italy

Chianale, whose name derives from "La Chanal" in the Occitan language, is the last village in the Val varaita, before climbing to Colle dell'Agnello.

So called because crossed by the Varaita, which here takes the form of a wide and deep canal, it is a splendid example of typical architecture and traditions of the upper valley, well preserved here.

Coming along the central street of the village is like diving into the life of the past.

You can visit the two churches of the town, connected by an ancient stone bridge, and the interesting Costume Museum, as well as shops with typical crafts.
