FB01 - THE VIA FRANCIGENA ROAD BY BIKE - LEG I

From Palestro the path follows the bends of the river Sesia up to Rivoltella and Robbio, home of the S. Valeriano monastery and the S. Pietro church. In past times there was a "Hospicium" (hospice)  nearby. From the Sant'Albino and S. Croce abbeys in Mortara, mandatory stops for any real pilgrim, the path then carries on up to Tromello.
