Things to see and do

Visit the botanical path that offers an easy walk through a mixture of rocks and endemic flora, interspersed, identified by silk-screened plates in color. Punctuated by the imperceptible murmur of the river.

Wonderful hiking than the loop of the Holy sheep and Tataralla Elysée, with a stop in the chapel located at 1555 m from where you can see the ponds of Diana and Urbino next to Aleria.
