Far from the main roads, the Garfagnana today appears as a secluded valley, almost inaccessible, and this is its most beautiful feature. But this has not always been the same, there was a time when crossing the valley was obligatory.
The Clodia Nova passed through here and, even before Sigeric, the pilgrims who reached the Holy Land from France. Armies of all governments, with the bad habit of always leaving behind them death and destruction, and brigands of every kind, who enjoyed almost absolute impunity in this borderland.
History has handed down these three important routes, today hiking trails of rare beauty.
