San Pellegrino in Alpe - Castelnuovo di Garfagnana

Stage 9

The route flows downhill through meadows, right below the shrine, then it develops into a road, that reaches the little town of Valbona, after meeting a few isolated houses, from here following a mule track we reach Castiglione di Garfagnana, a wonderful example of medieval town still wrapped within its original walls; one must simply see the inside of the fortitude and the narrow paths of the historic area.
Then again through meadows until Marcione, then after crossing a little stream we climb up towards Mulini di Pieve Fosciana, cross the village and reach the little thermal lake Prà di Lama, then Le Lame and finally the Cappuccini’s Church arriving in Castelnuovo di Garfagnana nearby the Teatro Alfieri.
