The Val di Viù is the most southern of the three Lanzo Valleys.
The Stura di Viù, branch of the Lanzo Stura, has excavated it. In the higher part of the valley it lays in an East-West direction, slightly turning northward in the lower valley. Small artificial lakes, Lago di Malciaussia at 1.805 m altitude, and the bigger one Lago della Rossa, to the North-West at the foot of mount Croce Rossa. The Rocciamelone, 3.538 m, recognizable from the lower valley due to its pyramidal shape, closes up the valley to the West while the Torre d’Ovarda, a rocky trapezoidal massif, borders to the North with Val d’Ala. discover more
