Nestled at the edge of the Langhe hills, Bra is a city of art that over the last several years has been claiming a strong identity as a center of fine wines and foods. It was here that the ‘Slow Food Movement’ was founded in 1986 and with full dedication strives to preserve traditional and regional cuisine. Apart from the great selection of food, restaurants, and wine, the historical center of Bra is an example of the North Italian Baroque style with many churches and palaces dating from the 17th and 18th century.
