Overview

The Doria Riparia is a tributary of the Po. It has its source as the Piccola Dora on the hill of Monginevro and is Turin's second river. It used to be very important for the socio-economic development of the city. During the Middle Ages, canals known as 'bealere' were constructed on which grain mills were built powered by the water of the river. Between the 16th and 19th centuries, stones and sand were quarried from its bed to build most of the buildings in Turin while its waters were channeled into 'dojre' and used to clean the roads. The only sections of the Dora that can be navigated today are within Pellerina Park.
