From history to nature : Prominent route that takes you from the medieval district of Saint-Pierre into the heart of Gran Paradiso National Park. An itinerary dedicated to those who truly love the mountains, through an unpretentious and fascinating valley.

Valsavarenche
Introd derives its name from “entre les eaux” [“between the waters”]. The town, in fact, is located in an excellent position on a plateau that overlooks on one side the Dora di Rhêmes river, and on the other, the Savara and Dora di Valsavarenche rivers. Here you can visit the local history museum Maison Bruil and the castle that probably dates back to the 12th century or admire a beautiful example of typical rural construction, the ancient Ola farmstead.
From Introd the road goes up through Valsavarenche ending at the basin of the imposing Gran Paradiso group of mountains, which boasts the unique all-Italian “Alpine Four-thousanders”. Another valley particularly dear to King Vittorio Emanuele Il, among the preferred destinations for his memorable hunting expeditions.

Gran Paradiso National Park
In 1919 the Savoy granted their ancient hunting reserve to the State, in between Piedmont and Aosta Valley, which three years later became the first Italian national park. Here the wild goat, the mountain antelope, the Golden Eagle, and the marmot reign… Just a bit of patience and attention in observing the hillsides and coniferous forests, and it will not be difficult to identify any of the intriguing “inhabitants” of the Park.
