Walk accompanied by the notes of a “band” and listen on the spot to the words of those who have experienced that place. This will be the Talking Walk de July 10 in Fenestrelle.
Departure is scheduled at 4 p.m. from the Fenestrelle tourist office, then planning to walk through part of the old town and down via Roma to the Chisone. From here, after hearing from a guide’s voice an introduction to the theme of the fort and the natural environment in which you are immersed, and a few songs by Bandakadabra, you will climb up to the fort where the musicians will give their actual concert. The walking group with the guide will then return to Fenestrelle by going around the Mutin and once they arrive at Michellonet Square they will listen to an interpreted reading by the Waldensian Roads themselves.
