A city constructed about 800 years ago, Cuneo was built on a piece of land shaped in the form of a “wedge,” for which the town is named. Walls, towers, and an abundance of historic monuments secure this medieval village with a population of more than 52,000. Baroque churches are prominent throughout the town and the historic center consists of ancient houses and palaces. The 16th Century Town Hall has been recently restored and is a definite tourist attraction. Eight kilometers of covered walkways provide needed shade from the hot summer sun and lend a distinctive character to the area.
