The Belvedere Motta is located at the highest point of the village (553 meters above sea level).
Here once stood the castle, conquered by the French of the fifteenth century.
Most of the fortifications were dismantled in the 16th but until 1861 a tower remained standing, later demolished: for this reason even today the Belvedere Motta is known as Piazzale della Torre.
In the Belvedere garden, the trunk of an elm that became famous as Olmo del Ciabattino is still visible.
Here Don Giovanni Bosco, canonized saint in 1934, lectured for his boys and used to put his activities in a cobbler that he placed in a cavity of the tree.
The elm has vegetated from 1727 until 1980.
From Belvedere Motta, on clear days, you can enjoy a splendid view of the Asti hills and glimpse the Basilica of Superga.
