Alba was the ancient Roman city of Alba Pompeia, the birthplace of Roman Emperor Pertinax (AD 126-193). Today, it is renowned for its gastronomy, including its white truffles (tartufi bianchi) and wines. The town's many feudal towers, churches and old houses add to its medieval atmosphere, while the cathedral is worth a visit for its superbly carved inlaid Renaissance choir stalls.
