Points of interest

SANCTUARY MADONNA DELL'ACERO
SANCTUARY MADONNA DELL'ACERO

A 16th-17th century sanctuary, made in a very simple style, as well as a series of houses placed next to each other in complete harmony with the surrounding natural environment. The sanctuary was built on a stone temple, constructed to protect the maple tree - in italian acero - under which, according to legend, two shepherd children, one of which was deaf-mute, took refuge during a snowstorm. Here the Madonna appeared to them, donating the hearing and the word to the deaf-mute child.

THE CORNO ALLE SCALE REGIONAL PARK
THE CORNO ALLE SCALE REGIONAL PARK

The Park is a natural protected area in the Bolognese Apennines, almost entirely covered with forests that offer multicoloured views whatever the season. The imposing ridge of the Corno alle Scale (1,944 metres) forms the central axis that creates the valleys of the Torrents Dardagna and Silla. Along the less rugged slopes you can find typical mountain villages while in the woods with a little luck you can meet roe deer, fallow deer, mouflons, and many species of birds including golden eagles.

THE DARDAGNA WATERFALLS
THE DARDAGNA WATERFALLS

Spectacular waterfalls consisting of no less than 7 drops generated by the Dardagna torrent along the balconies of Mount Cervarola and immersed in breathtaking oak and beech woods, these places were the background of violent battles on the front of the Green Line during World War II.
