Short description of Itinerary

Certainly among the most beautiful itineraries in the Finale area for a hiker who wants to visit places of archaeological interest. It is interesting to visit the Megalithic Enclosure of Camporotondo, whose significance still remains a mystery today, and the “Ciappo dei Ceci” and “Ciappo delle Conche” with rock engravings dating back to the Neolithic period. Both the Ciappi and Camporotondo, precisely because of the mysterious atmosphere that surrounds them, manage to convey a very special charm to hikers who venture onto the plateau. On the route there are several refuges under the rocks (the main ones still clearly visible on the route remain Casa del Vacchè and Ca' Cerisola) which bear witness to the living conditions of our ancestors. Also worth a small visit is the tiny village of Lacremà (Calvisio Vecchia in dialect) with its Church of San Cipriano overlooking the valley of Pia. Recommended excursion between April and May for the blossoming of wild cherry trees
