The terraced itinerary continues on the sunny slope of the Val Maira, with beautiful panoramas and many groups of barns and permanent houses with characteristic building typologies. You then reach the dividing line to descend into the deep valley of Elva and cross the many beautiful hamlets before reaching the administrative centre, which displays its famous church with frescos by the Master of Elva.
