Gran Overview Paradiso



They ended the times, to be able to go up, they saw as the Mountaineers even from the valley floor at Villeneuve towards Dégioz and Pont, discarding Introd.
The old muletrack who traveled to the East high above the Savara to reach the old Refuge Vittorio Emanuele II° has been completely abandoned and now only prove a distant memory. Today a road asphalt along the entirety reaching Pont (1980m), where the adventure begins. But just before the same another trail reaches a new shelter dedicated to the two famous brothers Mountaineers and Climbers Federico and Renato Chabod, great Sons of Val Savarenche. But this is also, par excellence, since 1922 the Valley of P.N.G.P. (National Park of Gran Paradiso) that coinvole, but not so complete like this, the nearby Valleys of Cogne, Rhêmes and Soana-Ceresole Reale, this last in Piedmont.

Poi son terminati i tempi che, per poterlo salire, vedevano partire gli Alpinisti addirittura dal fondo valle presso Villeneuve verso Dégioz e Pont evitando Introd.
La vecchia mulattiera che percorrevano alta ad Est sopra la Savara per raggiungere il Rifugio Vittorio Emanuele II° é rimasta completamente abbandonata ed ormai testimonia soltanto un lontano ricordo. Oggi una strada asfaltata la percorre integralmente raggiungendo Pont (1980 m), ove inizia questa avventura. Ma subito prima del medesimo un altro sentiero raggiunge un nuovo rifugio dedicato ai due celebri fratelli Federico e Renato Chabod, grandi Figli della Valsavarenche. Risulta anche, per eccellenza, dal 1922 la Valle del P.N.G.P. (Parco Nazionale del Gran Paradiso) coinvolgente, ma non in modo completo come questa, le viciniori Valli di Cogne, Rhêmes e Soana-Ceresole Reale in Piemonte.




But they are end even those who saw us as young people roam around here, running and riding over him on "Granpa" or offering chocolate to Turin red fox. Climbing along the North Faces at night or cackling with cheerful downhill with companies from Ciarforon and Becca Monciair, then "fall back" in Snowshoeing towards the Cross of Roley going towards Turin, which is not a city but an old alp, to meet the Red Fox, that it is not an old American Indian Redskins. Who followed us in silence like a domestic dog accompanying us, while the Night fell, towards Pont of Valsavarenche. Because after a bright day always darkness falls, even if at Dawn they share the Bikes ...

Ma son finiti anche quelli che ci vedevan giovani scorazzare da queste parti, correndo in groppa al Gran Paradiso o dando il cioccolato alla volpe rossa di Turin.
Scalando le Nord di notte oppure schiamazzando con allegre compagnie in discesa da Ciarforon e Monciair, per poi "ripiegare" in Racchette da neve verso la Croce della Roley andando a Turin, che non é una città ma una vecchia alpe, ad incontrare Volpe Rossa, che non é un vecchio indiano. Che ci seguiva in silenzio come cane domestico accompagnandoci, mentre calava la Notte, verso Pont di Valsavarenche. Perché dopo giornata luminosa scende sempre il buio, anche se all'Alba ripartono le Bikes ...

Visiting Valsavarenche at the feet of Bioula, Grivola and Gran Paradiso


Arrived in Aymavilles Commune (646m), you have to keep going to the West reaching the adjacent Municipality of Villeneuve (656/65m; current Church of Santa Assunta of 1782), while the ancient Parish with Romanesque bell tower is of 1400. But most of the Châtel Argent above the XI° Century with its walled in ruins but with the cylindrical Tower still present. It constructed of materials that came from the Roman road to Petit Saint Bernard. Owned by the Lords of Bard, then those of St. Pierre and the 1605 Lord Leonardo Roncas Aosta, he was dismantled in the eighteenth Century to rebuild homes after a violent storm. From the square of the Church apart from the Regional Road to the municipality of Introd, reached just after the bridge is 70 metres above a frightful ravine (872m; magnificent Château d'Introd of 1260 with internally Square tower and Roman Barn; Church of 1500 and Bell Tower 1600). The castle was built by Peter Introd Bard and restored in the twentieth Century. But before we get to Introd and after the Hamlet of Junod in that of Villes are in the feature Dessous (806m; Chapel of St. James of 1867 with three mini Bell Towers topped by many Crosses) while proceeding as well as the Dessus (863 m; Church San Ilario). While over the common, left in the Southwest the detour to the Valley of Rhêmes, near the roadside to Buillet small Village (1030 m; tiny Church of San Defendente). Continuing on the road to Valsavarenche you reach the Villages Chevrère (1108m; little Church), Molere (1108m; little Church) to above winding road 1132 metres Fenille (1304m; Chapel); then continuing to the East of Dora Savara and exceeded the Hamlets of la Ramou and Bois de Clin reach that of Rovenaud (1462m; little Church). Soon we arrive at the Chief-town of Dégioz-Valsavarenche (1525/47m; Parish Church and near Campanile with Meridiana 1802; Centre for the visit P.N.G.P.), located at the foot of the "arduous beautiful Grivola" (3969m) by the Poet Giosué Carducci. From here on, the Religion gradually gives way to the "Civilization" but there is still something: the detour to the South of Dégioz to Toulaplana and Creton Villages (1613m; little Church), Bien (1629m; small Church), little more than "Camping Grivola" and before the "Agriturismo Lo Mayen" and finally, after the "Camping Gran Paradiso" and the departure of the route n° 5/5A/10A the Refuge Federico and Renato Chabod (2710m). Finally in Pont of Valsavarenche-Breuil (1952/69m; little Church) with great parking and the trail n° 1 to the two adjacent Vittorio Emanuele II° Refuges (2734m). But if you want to achieve the ultimate signal of Christianity there remains that go up and then climb to the Gran Paradiso or "Granpa" (4061m) on the Summit where you will find the "Madonnina" highest of all Graian Alps, Chain of Mont Blanc excluded.

Villeneuve-Châtel Argent towards Dégioz and Pont Valsavarenche below Grivola & Gran Paradiso, passing through Introd


Arrivati ad Aymavilles, bisogna proseguire sempre ad Ovest raggiungendo l'adiacente Villeneuve (656/65 m; attuale Chiesa di Santa Assunta del 1782), mentre l'antica Parrocchia con Campanile Romanico é del 1400. Ma soprattutto il soprastante Châtel Argent del XI° Secolo con la sua cinta di mura in rovina e la Torre cilindrica ancora presente; costruito con materiali romani che provenivano dal disfacimento della strada "Consiliare" del Piccolo San Bernardo. Di proprietà dei Signori di Bard, poi di quelli di St. Pierre e dal 1605 di Leonardo Roncas, venne smantellato nel XVIII° Secolo per ricostruire le case dopo un violentissimo uragano con grandi distruzioni. Dalla piazzetta della Chiesa parte la Strada Regionale per il Comune di Introd, che si raggiunge subito dopo il ponte alto 70 metri sopra uno spaventevole orrido nella Dora (872 m; splendido Château d'Introd del 1260 con internamente Torre quadrata e Granaio Romano; Chiesa del 1500 e Campanile del 1600). Il Castello venne costruito da parte di Pietro Introd di Bard e restaurato nel Secolo XX°. Ma prima di arrivare ad Introd e dopo la Frazione Junod in quella di Villes troviamo a Dessous la caratteristica (806 m; Cappella di San Giacomo del 1867 con tre mini campanili sormontati da altrettante Croci) mentre procedendo oltre a Dessus la (863 m; Chiesa di Sant'Ilario). Mentre oltre il comune, lasciata a Sudovest la deviazione per la Val di Rhêmes, sul ciglio della strada a Buillet (1030 m; Chiesetta di San Defendente). Continuando sulla strada per Valsavarenche si raggiungono i Villaggi di Chevrère (1108 m; Chiesetta), Molere (1108 m; Chiesetta) al tornante 1132 m e Fenille (1304 m; Chiesetta); poi continuando ad Oriente della Dora di Savara ed oltrepassati i Villaggi di la Ramou e Bois de Clin si raggiunge Rovenaud (1462 m; Chiesetta). Ben presto si arriva al Capoluogo di Dégioz-Valsavarenche (1525/47 m; Chiesa Parrocchiale e vicino Campanile Romanico con Meridiana del 1802; Centro di visita del P.N.G.P.), situato ai piedi dell'"ardua Grivola bella" (3969 m) di Giosué Carducci. Da qui in avanti la Religione progressivamente cede il passo alla "Civiltà" ma troviamo ancor qualcosa: dalla deviazione a Sud di Dégioz verso i Villaggetti di Toulaplana ed il Creton (1613 m; Chiesetta), a Bien (1629 m; Chiesetta), poco oltre il "Camping Grivola" e prima dell'"Agriturismo Lo Mayen" ed infine, dopo il "Camping Gran Paradiso" e la partenza del sentiero n° 5/5A/10A per il Rifugio Federico e Renato Chabod (2710 m); infine a Pont di Valsavarenche-Breuil (1952/69 m; Chiesetta) con grande parcheggio e partenza del sentiero n° 1 per il Rifugio Vittorio Emanuele II° (2734 m). Volendo raggiungere l'estremo segnale della Cristianità non rimane che salire proseguendo per l'ascensione del "Granpa" (4061 m) sulla cui Vetta troverete la "Madonnina" più alta delle Graie, Catena del Bianco esclusa.
