December 8, 2017 Yuk Petri

Ivrea (Italian pronunciation: [iˈvrɛːa]; French: Ivrée, Latin: Eporedia) is a town and comune of the Metropolitan City of Turin in the Piedmont region of northwestern Italy. Situated on the road leading to the Aosta Valley (part of the medieval Via Francigena), it straddles the Dora Baltea and is regarded as the centre of the Canavese area. Ivrea lies in a basin that in prehistoric times formed a large lake. Today five smaller lakes — Sirio, San Michele, Pistono, Nero and Campagna — are found in the area around the town.

Orange Battle

This is one of Italy’s most unusual festivals. Held during carnival in mid-winter, the entire town of Ivrea near Turin turns into a battlefield where oranges are thrown in the streets, reenacting a legendary battle for freedom from oppression. There are nine 'teams' representing the different neighbourhoods of the town that participate in the battle. To avoid being pelted by citrus, make sure you find a spot behind one of the large nets that are set up all over town.

If you are not, come to the great historical carnival of Ivrea the day before, sleep in the town and the day after live one of the most enjoing experience. Pay attention to thiefs inside people.

Chiesa di San Bernardino

Reviewed By Francesco O - Oleggio, Italy

Chiesa bellissima e con degli affreschi stupendi.
Unpò complicato poterla visitare perché bisogna prenotare, in oltre per goderne al massimo delle bellezze sarebbe consigliata la visita con la guida che illustra tutte le bellezze in essa contenute.
Comunque, chi è di zona non può fare a meno di visitarla!

Reviewed By ILARIA L - Viareggio, Italy

Ci siamo trovati per caso nei pressi di questa pasticceria e abbiamo comprato un panettone artigianale che abbiamo poi mangiato nei giorni di festa. Impasto morbidissimo e profumatissimo, un cioccolato fondente veramente buono...ed è stato apprezzato anche da chi il fondente proprio nn lo ama del tutto. Molto buoni anche i biscotti tipici di Ivrea. Leccornie da provare x tutti i gusti!

Via Francigena

Reviewed By 145Carol - Sydney, Australia

We travelled by car last year following the Via Francigena. Driving through Ivrea we were overwhelmed by the sight of the huge castle, but could not get near it. We ended up following all the Via Francigena signs to the walking track a the edge of the city. It looked very inviting! Maybe next time, some walking!

Chiesa di San Grato

Reviewed By icab01 - Ivrea, Italy

Edificata sulla collina della Paraj Auta, la chiesetta risale al XII secolo e, inizialmente intitolata a San Giovanni, nel ‘500 fu dedicata a San Grato, invocato nelle pestilenze. In origine l’unica navata era divisa in due campate, poi ne fu aggiunta un’altra nel XVII secolo e in seguito venne costruito il campanile.
Attigua alla cappella si è conservato un edificio (Romitorio) utilizzato fino all’inizio del ‘900 dal romito, cui era delegata la pulizia della chiesa,la coltivazione del vigneto e la cura dei boschi attigui.
Il complesso si presenta all’esterno con una facciata barocca intonacata e l’abside rettangolare in pietra a vista come le pareti laterali. All’interno sono conservati degli affreschi tra cui, ai lati dell’altare, l’opera quattrocentesca attribuita a Giacomino da Ivrea che raffigura San Pietro con la chiave del Paradiso e Sant’Andrea con la croce omonima.
Per raggiungere il romitorio ci sono diverse strade, ma la più facile è quella che parte dal castello di Pavone Canavese.
Portate la macchina fotografica per immortalare la vista panoramica che si gode da lassù...
