At the entrance to the Val di Peio, the town of Ossana is made up of the hamlets of Fucine and Cusiano. It is dominated by the Tower of the Castle of San Michele. It was once the religious pole of the entire valley, but also the center of temporal power which saw its fulcrum right in the medieval castle. The fortress stands on a spur of rock which dates back to the time of the Lombards.
Ossana can be visited both in summer and in winter, for various reasons. From the village, a pleasant walk leads to the town of Val Piana, the starting point for excursions on foot. In the summer, you can also take long walks admiring the famous starry sky.
In winter, on the other hand, it is ideal for lovers of alpine skiing, given its proximity to the districts of Marilleva, Pejo and Passo del Tonale, as well as being famous for its 1000 nativity scenes set up during the Christmas period.
