History

Il Cucinone is just a few kilometers from Pavia, chief town of the province, ancient capital of the Longboard Kingdom. We recommend the “Castello Visconteo” and it’s periodical exhibitions inside the ancient stables, the Duomo of Pavia, the numerous basilicas, like “San Michele Maggiore” and “San Pietro in Ciel d’Oro” in which the reliquary of Saint Augustine is preserved and the University of Pavia, built in 825. Easily reachable are the Certosa di Pavia, built in 1396 by order of Gian Galeazzo Visconti, the town of Vigevano with its Piazza Ducale (1492, designed by Bramante) and Valle Lomellina, which is of historic and artistic interest. Going into Oltrepò, going up the hills, you will find medieval and renaissance villages. The village of Sant'Alberto, with the remains of the ancient abbey of Sant'Alberto di Butrio, Fortunago and Zavattarello, included in the hundred most beautiful villages in Italy, Varzi, a medieval village that played a key role in the exchanges along the Via del Sale and Volpedo, birthplace of the famous painter Pellizza da Volpedo, author of the "Fourth State". The Via Francigena, known as the long road from Canterbury to Rome (tomb of St. Peter), in the Province of Pavia includes the Sanctuary of Our Lady of the Bozzole (Garlasco).

Recreational activities

A few minutes of travel from “Il Cucinone” there are several recreational facilities, such as Salice Terme and Rivanazzano Terme, one of the most famous and appreciated Italian spas. At the Motodromo e Kartodromo di Castelletto di Branduzzo you can participate in races and use the tracks for cars, motorcycles, karts and supermoto. In Voghera, finally, you can spend a day as a real Cow Boy at the Guest Ranch.

Parks and nature reserves

Of naturalistic interest are the Park of Ticino, where dense woods combine with a varied fauna and the alluvial plain of Basso Pavese, where we meet the characteristic river terraces near Belgioioso and S. Cristina. The Pietra Corva Botanical Garden, at 950 meters above sea level, characterized by a large collection of flora not only from the Alps, but also from other mountain systems such as the Himalayas and the Andes. There is also the Oasis of Sant'Alessio, near Pavia, that has been a "biologically balanced" wildlife park since 1994 for its ornithological reserve and the breeding of endangered species. At the Monte Alpe nature reserve, you can find natural species such as the dog rose, liverwort and manna ash. In the area nesting birds of prey such as sparrow hawks, buzzards, tawny owls, while at the edge of the reserve live the greater red woodpecker, red-legged partridge, stonechat and subalpine warbler. It is also possible to see squirrels, boars along with various species of dormice. The marshland park of Lungavilla can be visited at any time of the year. Wild geese and trout populate it, while tench, carp, catfish and common rudd are native. In the park, there are 70 species of birds and 20 mammals, amphibians and reptiles. The Garzaia della Roggia Torbida, is the only one situated in the Oltrepo Pavese and it is home to, besides the aldehydes, of the marten and the mouse of the rice field that builds typical ball nests, hanging from the marsh vegetation. The "Le Folaghe" Nature Park covers an area of about 70 hectares, characterized by abandoned clay quarries, the deepest of which, flooded by groundwater, have turned into lakes, becoming a safe haven for many animal species.
