Pietrapazza - Siepe dell’Orso - Poggio della Bertesca - Fonte delle Cavalle - Eremo Nuovo - Pietrapazza

An evocative excursion in the Casentinesi Forest Park thanks to the encounter with its many and varied natural environments, from the arid ridge to the wooded valleybottom to the millenary beech wood and white spruce trees. The route enables you to cover a great panoramic area, both for the exposed ridges and the slopes with the Riodolmo and the Bidente rivers embanked between steep rocky and wooded versants. The extremely small hamlet in Pietrapazza completes this human and natural fresco, which man has abandoned after making it homely with the efforts of over a hundred years.

Not to be missed:
close to its old houses and on the bridges surrounding Pietrapazza, the emotion of walking on mule-tracks consumed by the passage of thousands of wanderers, coalmen, farmworkers and woodcutters.


1 - Pietrapazza
Nestled in the wild and melancholic valley of the Bidente river in Pietrapazza, this hamlet has been witness to an ancient and heroic anthropization. In 1900 the village was inhabited by hundreds of inhabitants, but it has been gradually abandoned. This is where descendants of ancient inhabitants gather on the first Sunday in September, to celebrate together.
