  • The church of S. Alessandro enjoys a truly wonderful panoramic position on top of the hill and surrounded by rows of vineyards. Really pretty and well preserved. Excellent destination for a relaxing trip.
  • The oratory dedicated to the patron saint of shepherds is located in a scenic position on the edge of the hill; its construction seems to date back to the mid-1400s by Filippo Maria Visconti who wanted to donate a place of worship to the underlying Cascina di Sant'Alessandro, now Cascina Fontana. It is in almost perfect conditions of conservation mainly because it was rebuilt around 1930 (a date engraved on the facade reports 1933). Given its isolated position it is rightly closed. The open panorama on the Vigane plain (once used as a community pasture) is appreciable even if the noise that rises from the A26 certainly does not contribute to making the stop unforgettable. A few meters away, a stone commemorates some partisans and civilians killed in the area in 1944.
