Men since ancient history obstinately inhabited the valleys and plateaus of Valnerina. These valleys are seemingly steep, but generous with those who love them. Men in full respect of nature took part in the construction of a landscape where perfect is the union between nature and culture.

  • Valnerina’s landscape will tell you the history of the millenary work of farmers and shepherds who inhabited this land. For ages silence was broken only by the soft flowing of the river. Still today it arouses a sense of peace and quiet, but in the past it inspired a strong sense of spirituality, which is still possible to read on the façades of Romanesque Abbeys, in medieval parish churches and in those simple and reassuring little Madonnas (Madonelle) or votive niches, placed at crossroads.
