BARDONECCHIA

Bardonecchia, in the province of Turin, is at an altitude of 1,312 m, in a large basin where four valleys converge: the valleys of Rochemolles, Frejus, Rho and Melezet with the Valle Stretta. The basin of Bardonecchia opens up in the middle of a wide amphitheatre of fairly high peaks (many over 3,000 m high, maximum altitude: 3,505), and their respective homonimous streams flow from the four valleys.
