The “Vermenagna-Roya project. Our heritage and your tourism in Vermenagna-Roya “is a three-year activity funded by the European Union under the European program of cross-border cooperation between France and Italy Alcotra, which sees the Municipality of Borgo San Dalmazzo leader of a broad partnership cross-border composed of ten municipalities (Borgo San Dalmazzo, Roccavione, Robilante, Vernante, Limone Piemonte, La Brigue, Saorge, Breil-sur-Roya, Tenda and Fontan) and two associations (Patrimoine et Traditions Brigasques and the Ecomusée du haut pays).


The brochure dedicated to the events organized in the ten municipalities of the two valleys in the period up to June is being distributed in all the information points of the cross-border territory Vermenagna-Roya. A calendar full of events dedicated to the mountains and to sport, culture and music, typical gastronomic traditions: about one hundred events equally distributed between France and Italy.

Il progetto, che vede il Comune di Borgo San Dalmazzo capofila di un ampio partenariato transfrontaliero composto da dieci comuni (Borgo San Dalmazzo, Roccavione, Robilante, Vernante, Limone Piemonte, La Brigue, Saorge, Breil-sur-Roya, Tenda e Fontan) e due associazioni (Patrimoine et Traditions Brigasques e l’Ecomusée du haut pays), è consacrato alla definizione di un piano turistico comune tra i due versanti del Colle di Tenda.
Among the activities under way to achieve this result, there is also the provision of twenty-two tourist itineraries to enhance the cultural and environmental heritage of the territory: the routes summarize the accessible cultural offer of each municipality; for each of them a walking itinerary was studied in the historical center and a car route outside the city center. The philosophy of the itineraries is to have a running time of no more than 50 minutes, to which you can add the time spent visiting the goods included on the route: in this way anyone can determine the length of the visit and customize it according to their interests. In any case, the itineraries will never last more than 2 hours, visits to the goods included.

Cross-border inter-municipal routes will be developed linked to specific themes and identities for the territory, such as medieval history or baroque art, to which secondary cultural themes will be added, to ensure further stimulation and other ideas for passionate tourists.

As the Roermian Vermenagna territory is strongly marked by the presence of the Cuneo-Ventimiglia-Nizza railway line, routes of discovery of the territory will be proposed starting from the railway stations, also taking advantage of the concept of mixed mobility train / bicycle or train / walk.

Not only cultural and tourist details: all the visit proposals are accompanied by practical information and have distances to cover, travel times and other technical data that will allow tourists to choose what to visit, also based on the time available and any hiking difficulties of the chosen itinerary.

This work does not forget accessibility for the disabled, suggesting suitable routes for people with reduced mobility: in this context it should also be noted that, during the mapping of the itineraries, small town planning interventions aimed at improving of the possibility of wheelchair travel.

The work to set up the itineraries will be completed by the end of February: all the material will be published on the project website, which will be put online in the spring and from which it can be consulted online or downloaded in the form of cards.
