The Ricetto di Candelo is a medieval jewel, where it is possible to discover much of the Candelo territory, from its history to its morphology, which has changed a lot over the decades as evidenced by the documents in the Ecomuseum of Viticulture, located in one of the cellars of the village.
Since ancient times, Candelo has always been ideally divided into two, two parts of a separate town between the Parish of San Lorenzo (to the south) and that of San Pietro (to the north). The neighborhoods therefore developed around these two great churches.
A village surrounded by greenery, Candelo offers spaces equipped for sport (Cittadella dello Sport) and leisure. Among them the Parco dell’Albero d’Oro is noteworthy, a playground also accessible to the handicapped.
Going down the walls you arrive at the Passeggiata degli Alpini, an ancient path that was abandoned and that the Candelese Alpine troops have restored, an excellent path in nature that passes under the walls of the shelter.
The greatest naturalistic attraction you can find in Candelo is undoubtedly the Baraggia. The road that leads to Mottalciata is in itself suggestive for its landscapes, but as it enters the woods and climbs up the slope, it winds through a rather unique plateau. It is the Oriented Natural Reserve of the Barraggia.
At the Ricetto di Candelo, every two years, the “Candelo in Fiore” event is held, for the occasion, the Candelo shelter is filled with multicolored flowers to decorate all the alleys and buildings.
