Itineraries Car and motorbike: Lago di Vagli - Campocatino - Lago di Gramolazzo - Orto di Donna

This itinerary leads you into the heart of the Parco delle Alpi Apuane (Apuan Alps Park – www.apuaneweb.it), highlighting its peculiarities. Along the road to Vagli Sotto, you can see the artificial lake of Vagli which hides the submerged village of Fabbriche. When the lake is drained, the ancient village, founded by ironmongers from Brescia, comes hauntingly to life. A must to visit is the San Regolo Parish Church, the Casa Abrami Museum and S. Agostino, a romanesque church (X1 century).

After going up to Vagli di Sopra, you soon reach Campocatino: an ancient pastoral area located on the sides of fields at the foot of Monte Roccandagia, which now is the LIPU Oasis. A track, easy to walk along, shows you the natural characteristics of this basin formed in the glacial era. About a 30 minute walk takes you to the S. Viano Hermitage.

From Campocatino you descend to Gorfigliano, here you can visit the medieval complex of Chiesa Vecchia (Old Church) with the Museo dell'Identità dell'Alta Garfagnana (historical museum). In Gramolazzo the artificial lake’s clear waters reflect the profile of the highest mountain in the Apuan chain, Monte Pisanino.
