Vineyards and paddy fields: Novara

The Piedmontese Province of Novara borders on Lombardy to the south and extends in the north to the lower Lago Maggiore and the southern section of Lago d’Orta. Its landscape is dominated by hills, water courses, meadows and forests, with the two rivers Sesia and Ticino setting its natural boundaries.
While the northern part of the province is famous for the wine-growing region of Colline Novaresi, the south towards the Po Valley is characterised in the main by countless paddy fields.
Novara, the second largest city in the region and the capital of the province with the same name, lies in east Piedmont in the middle of an enormous rice plain. Many “monumental witnesses” testify to the past history of Novara, such as well-constructed fortifications and the famous cupola of the Basilica of San Gaudenzio.
