Attractions along the route
After a stop at the hamlet's play area, the route resumes on an asphalt road and leads to various attractions. Among these is Casa Regis, a house recovered and used as a contemporary art exhibition. There is also a Giacomone sales point, where you can buy the typical mountain tome and Macagno cheese.
Another interesting stop is the Opera Pia Sella, which testifies to the Sella family's commitment to the community and to education. This place preserves evidence of this family's commitment to community and education, making it a place of great historical and social interest.
The route continues along the Via Curcis Bulliana, which leads to the Moor. This place was restored thanks to donations from the faithful. The 12 chapels along the street are testimony to the Christian artistic influence throughout the area, offering an interesting historical and cultural insight.
if you leave from Gozzano you will arrive in Pella for lunch - you can decide whether to take the boat and return in the late afternoon (better on spring days)
In the Lido di Gozzano area there is a large car park. From there the blue walk along the lake will easily take you to San Maurizio d'Opaglio and finally Pella.
In Pella you will find some restaurants, bars and pizzerias. You can decide to complete the boat tour to the island of silence and Orta San Giulio.
On winter or autumn days, leave the car in Pella and follow in the opposite direction to Gozzano but you decide when to go back for lunch or whether to take the sandwiches with you. Along the road there is a pizzeria (Da Venanzio) which directly overlooks the lake but you have to check the opening hours. Otherwise it is better to return to Pella.
The Walk of the Hamlets is a unique and fascinating experience, which offers the opportunity to discover the beauty of the municipality of Mosso and its hamlets. Whether you are a nature lover, a history and art enthusiast or a lover of typical products, this excursion will have something to offer you. Good walk!
