Montù Beccaria

Description

Town of the Oltrepò Pavese area, located on the hills of the Valle Versa, Montù Beccaria (Mons acutus) is an important vine-growing center, famous for the production of Barbera, Pinot and Bonarda. It was mentioned for the first time in a diploma of Frederick I in 1164. On the highest hill, the noble family Beccaria of Pavia built a small fortress, to control the trading in the valley and to avoid being attacked by surprise. In later centuries the fortress was destroyed and rebuilt several times and at the end of the XVII century, Aureliano, last descendant of Beccaria, ceded the building to the Congregation of Barnabites.
In addition to the medieval castle, today a private residence, a visit to the Parish Church of San Michele Arcangelo is suggested, with valuable paintings and a precious Baroque altar.
