This itinerary is quite interesting from a landscape point of view: it develops in the territory of Calciano for 14 km, along the road that starting from the ancient “royal path” in Calciano crosses the Park and reaches “Cappella Cognato”. Along the way, it is possible to discover important peculiarities of the Forest of Cognato, witnesses of a millenary history, such as “Cappella Cognato” (a small rural church) that, during the XII century, hosted the hermitage of St. Guglielmo from Vercelli, or the “Austrian Path”, built by a colony of Austrian war prisoners during the First World War.
