The Archaeological area
RocceRé is one of the most important rock art sites of the Bronze Age in Europe and is located at the foot of the Maira Valley, in Roccabruna, in the Cuneo province.
Holds the record for the concentration of rock incisions
in a very small area (over 20,000 cups of about 20,000 square meters) and is unique to the type of figures present.
A spiritual place that is fascinating and mysterious to the morphology and the views. Walking through its engraved rocks and outcroppings of white quartz going back more than 4000 years ago. In an area embraced by lush vegetation you can see the Boulder Altar on which there is the most important incision of the site, the Roccias Fenestre, the Throne of the King and the Cave of Balmascura.
During the excursion is not uncommon to meet the guardians of RocceRé: the ravens. With a bit of luck you can spot even the chamois and eagles.
