The route up to Gassino Torinese is entirely in urban areas. Some archaeological finds have placed the first settlement back to the times of the flourishing development of the Roman city of Industria: this and Augusta Taurinorum were, in fact, connected by a road along which may have been built a castrum. Forming part of the territory of the Marquisate of Monferrato, since 1003 Gassino was surrounded by walls and a typical medieval layout that can still be seen in the colonnaded structure in the historic town centre dominated by the circular formed Church of the Confraternita dello Spirito Santo: built in the 18th century, it has a beautiful baroque facade topped by a very tall dome, known as the Cucurin, which is reminiscent of its contemporary at Superga. The oldest parish church dates back to the 11th century: now called the Church of SS. Pietro e Paolo, it was partly rebuilt and restored in the 18th century in the style of Guarini; inside there is the wonderful painting of Our Lady and Saints by Claudio Francesco Beaumont and, in the side chapel, the 17th century painting, the Visitation.
