Look at the Monferrato from the fortified hill and keep two feet in two provinces: in Robella, you can.
Robella is located in the north of the province of Asti
S covers an area of 12.18 km² and has a population of approximately 470 inhabitants.
It is about 33 km from Asti, the provincial capital.
The town was dominated by the Radicati di Cocconato and the Marquises of Monferrato.
The government of the Radicati lasted until the early nineteenth century when, with the death of Count Eustachio Radicati, the feudal rights passed to the Nicolis di Robilant.
Food and wine and typical products.
Some of the finest wines of Piedmont are produced in Robella: Barbera d'Asti DOCG, Barbera del Monferrato DOC, Barbera del Monferrato Superiore DOCG, Freisa d'Asti DOC, Monferrato DOC and Piemonte DOC.
To be seen.
The privately owned Castle of the Counts of Robilant is open to the public for guided tours by appointment.
Not far away we meet the eighteenth-century Church of Saint Giacomo Apostolo, the town's parish church.
Do not miss the Church of Saint Eusebio, the Chapel of Saint Francesco, and the chapel of Bric Macagnone.
Robella was served by the Sant'Anna-Robella railway station, which has been decommissioned since 2011.
