A pure mountain paradise

You know that scent of resins, fir needles and damp wood?

If you want to leave at the very thought of it, then your destination is the Tavianella Mountains (1163 m) and Coroncina (1168 m), where there is an artificial lake that has all the characteristics of an alpine lake, but also Monte Baducco (1000 m). ) and the suggestive Abetaia with its refuge.

Welcome to the forests and mountains that overlook Castiglione, Roncobilaccio and Baragazza, a destination for those who love walking, enjoying nature on the saddle of a MTB, or for those looking for a destination that allows you to experience the "real" mountain a stone's throw from the city. Also perfect for a picnic and memorable photos here, where tall fir trees touch the sky and conceal streams, you will feel like you are walking inside a documentary.

Among the places not to be missed is the "Cottede Forest", a green lung, uncontaminated, lush with vegetation and rich in wild animals (roe deer, fawns, deer), where numerous varieties of birds and insects live together.
