San Giovanni Resort is located in the heart of the high part of Saluzzo, consisting of a medieval and Renaissance village, where you can find the adjacent Church of San Giovanni of 1300 (at 20 mt), the castle of Castiglia (at 300 mt) and aristocratic buildings of the fifteenth century, such as Casa Cavassa (100 mt), now city museum, the Old Town Hall (at 200 mt) dominated by the civic Tower, and many others architectural treasures that defined the ancient Marquis capital as "the Siena of Piedmont".
To enhance and make this town even more attractive, the high part of the city has been transformed into a pedestrian area, to confirm that here the time has stopped. But the beauty of high Saluzzo is not just architectural and historical, because for its dominant position it gives a spectacular view of the Western Alps where stands the imposing Monviso, the "Stone King", from the slopes of which flows the river Po, which draws a green and fertile plain. The view of this amazing alpine area is one of the best shows in the world,it, that very few places like Piedmont are able to provide.
