Situated at the border with the Biella area, Roasio is a small town made up of five hamlets. It is a favourite area with outdoor and mountain bike enthusiasts.


This small wine-growing town situated at the border with the Biella area lies at the foothills of the pre-Alpine hills, and is crossed by the Rovasenda stream. Roasio consists of five hamlets: San Maurizio, Santa Maria, Sant’Eusebio, San Giorgio and Castelletto Villa.

Places of interest include the medieval bell tower and the Church of St. Eusebius of Pecurilio, the remains of the castle walls, which date back to the 12th century, as well as those of a square tower that is still well preserved.

The small town of Roasio is well known among mountain bike enthusiasts for the routes that reach the Red Banks, a hilly area stretching between the provinces of Biella and Vercelli.

The unusual, almost unreal landscape is created by the reddish rocks, which endow the land with a typical reddish hue.

The best known routes include the Gran Fondo del Bramaterra, a route with many scenic spots that winds its way through the seven municipalities where Bramaterra is produced: Brusnengo, Curino, Lozzolo, Masserano, Roasio, Sostegno and Villa del Bosco
