Fontainemore is located at 760 meters above sea level and consists of several well-preserved villages, in a particularly pleasant natural setting, surrounded by thick forests.
An ancient medieval bridge on the back of a mule with a single arch of 22 meters leads to the parish church of Sant'Antonio. The church was rebuilt in the seventeenth century on the remains of that of 1400, damaged by some landslides; inside, in addition to a carved wooden choir, the seventeenth century carved wooden portal is noteworthy.
The architectural ensemble consisting of the church and its bridge, with the torrent Lys flowing impetuously and the majestic backdrop of the mountains, represents a rather recurrent iconography as very suggestive.
Just outside Fontainemore, an ancient mule track leads to the "Gouffre de Guillemore", a very deep ravine dug by the Lys in the rock, where the torrent falls with an impressive leap.
Since 1993 the Mont Mars Nature Reserve has been established, which extends to the foot of the homonymous mountain, rich in lakes and peat bogs. It is possible to make excursions of varying difficulty, such as those leading to Colle della Barma (2261 m), Colle della Gragliasca (2210 m), Mont Mars (2600 m), Rifugio Coda (2280 m) or pleasant walks for reach the ancient villages scattered throughout the territory.
The area is also crossed by the path along which there is the Procession of Oropa, the oldest in the Valle d'Aosta, which, every 5 years, leads thousands of faithful from Fontainemore to the Sacro Monte di Oropa in the Biella area, declared by Unesco world heritage of humanity.
In winter Fontainemore offers several itineraries for ski mountaineering, snowshoeing and cross-country skiing trails.
Trails of the Lys:
is a trekking designed to make you live an unforgettable journey to discover a wonderful valley, fascinating history and unique landscapes. Starting from the heroic vineyards of the Lower Valley, your path will cross villages and mountain villages, terraced landscapes shaped by the inhabitants of these lands, enchanted woods and wild highland lands until you reach the glaciers of Monte Rosa, the queen of the Alps whose sinuous peaks have attracted explorers, mountaineers and travelers from all over the world for centuries.
has remained almost intact since its construction, the Bard Fort is one of the best examples of a fortress from the early nineteenth century.
The stronghold consists of three main buildings: starting from the bottom there are the Opera Ferdinando, the median building, - Opera Vittorio - until you reach the peak of the relief, where the Carlo Alberto Opera stands. The latter is the most impressive of the three works, which encompasses the large quadrangular courtyard of Piazza d'Armi, surrounded by a large portico, where are placed the spaces dedicated to temporary exhibitions: inside, in addition to the Museum of The Alps are the Prisons, which host a multimedia thematic route on the history of the Fort.
is a quiet village located at the entrance to the Champorcher valley.
The first settlements date back to the late Bronze Age and the Iron Age. Some traces of primitive sites called barme, shelters under the rock, and cupped stones or stones made concave by incisions that, according to some scholars, were used to perform religious and propitiatory rites.
Hône played a strategic role in the medieval period, when it was owned by the lordship of Bard.
In the nineteenth-century church of San Giorgio, the town preserves a treasure trove of masterpieces: three carved and gilded wooden altars, a pulpit carved with the legend of Saint George, and a splendid carved chancel.
From Hône there are numerous itineraries that wind through the woods and reach enchanting panoramic points, such as the path that leads to the Pourcil viewpoint, the path that climbs to the Biel Mountain (1473 m) passing through the characteristic mountain villages of Biel and Courtil or the walk to the evocative ravine of the Ayasse Torrent.
Finally, for rock climbing enthusiasts, we would like to mention the "Plates of Oriana".
