Il formaggio Piora


“Piora Valley” is also a synonym for the prestigious Piora cheese that you absolutely can't miss tasting. This renowned cheese is attributed to the fodder quality of the pasture, as well as to the rich aromatic flora. During the summer you can find about 500 grazing cows in the Piora valley. The annual cheese production reaches about 3000 pieces.
