History

The name of Caramagna appears for the first time in 1026. The foundation of the Monastery of Santa Maria by the marquis of Turin Olderico greatly increased the power of the country, which extended its interests around the southern Piedmont and Liguria.

The monastery was entrusted to the care of the nuns of the Order of St. Benedict; the same order was later replaced by the equivalent male order and later by the Girolamiti.

In 1250 Caramagna moved towards an organization of municipal type. In 1544 Caramagna was burned by the Spanish army. In 1690 an army of 15,000 French destroyed the town.
