2. Castelnuovo di Garfagnana - Fornovolasco

2. Castelnuovo - Fornovolasco

We leave Castelnuovo di Garfagnana by walking along the last section of Via del Volto Santo up to Gallicano with a partly paved and partly unpaved road, non at all dangerous. Once visited the Church of S. Jacopo in Gallicano, we continue by walking along the torrent Turrite di Gallicano to ascend to the hermitage Eremo di Calomini. The hermitage offers sleeping facilities to those who wish to make a stop here for the night and continue the next day. The walk terminates at Fornovolasco after having passed through Calomini and Vergemoli along partly paved, partly unpaved roads, everywhere very safe Fornovolasco has an interesting history of ironworking in the Middle Ages.
