The charming little village of Barbaresco is located in the famous hilly area of the Langhe, region known all around the world for its incredible production of exquisite wines.

Barbaresco offers few attractions like a characteristic medieval tower or the ex-Church of San Donato and numerous vineyards, located right outside the city centre.

The Medieval Tower is considered the symbol of the city. Built during the 11th century it was part of a bigger fortified complex, with other two smaller towers and a little castle. The complex was erected in order to defend the population from the barbarian invasions, which sadly were very frequent in the area after the fall of the Roman Empire. However the city was theatre of many battles and two of the towers and the castle were completely destroyed by the end of the 17th century. The remaining tower is the perfect location from where enjoy a breath-taking view over the lovely Barbaresco’s countryside.

The charming ex-Church of San Donato is another interesting building to explore. Once one of the village churches today it houses the Barbaresco Regional Enoteca Wine Shop where it is possible to find more than 100 local wine labels.
