  BASTION OF SALICE


Monuments and relevant spots
It is the oldest part of the city fortifications. Once a mighty 2,400 meters long curtain wall used to surround Fossano, with nine bastions, external ditches, platforms, trenches and counterscarps. In the XVIII century, the architect Nicolis di Robilant designed an ornamental staircase and a treed area on the top. A century after the esplanade above was used as a recreational venue with an open garden, while during the last World War the interior was used as a bomb shelter. Today the surrounding space is dedicated to the memory of the fallens and all wars fighters of Fossano.

  SAINT JOHN CHURCH


Monuments and relevant spots
The church of St. John, built for the first time in the XIII century and rebuilt in the early XVIII century, is linked to the family of Operti, one of the most important of the city. Only the first church belfry was saved. Always considered the church of the nobility, Saint John has many chapels, each one under the patronage of a family. To the left of the entrance, in a niche, it has a splendid XV century baptismal font.
