Tronzano Vercellese

Located near the Cavour Canal, Tronzano Vercellese is a small agricultural town linked since ancient times to the fate of the nearby town of Santhià.


Formerly divided between Upper and Lower Tronzano, which were later united into a tax-free town (burgfrieden) from the middle of the 13th century, the town is located in a rich flat area traversed by numerous watercourses, which are essential for the irrigation of the land and the cultivation of rice.

In the town, you can admire the parish church of Saints Peter and Paul, located in the centre of the town, at the edge of the main square and built by the community between the years 1732-1752, and the ancient Church of St. Martin, which dates back to 1256.

Standing on the edge of the town, with all the beauty of a national monument, is the 11th century Church of St. Peter at the cemetery. At the beginning of the 13th century, abandoned and heavily damaged, it became a shelter for knights from France on their way to the Holy Land during the Crusades. It was later recovered.
