Notary Records for Bricherasio

Strategically located at the entrance to the Pellice Valley, Bricherasio was frequently the victim of war. In 1537 it was destroyed and occupied by the French and in the 17th century it was severely damaged in battles to regain control by the Duke of Savoy. It also suffered damage from the religious wars between Catholics and Protestants.

Bricherasio currently occupies 8.7 square miles. The population in 2011 was 4,521, 25% higher than in the mid-1800s.
