The Via del Ferro in Morobbia Valley

The “Via del Ferro” is a themed route that explores the ironworks and mines that have characterised the upper Valle Morobbia since the early 18th century. It visits a number of fascinating historic sites, including the spectacular ruins of the tilt hammer and furnace in Carena, mines shrouded in mystery and the reconstruction of a charcoal pile. The path winds its way through the evocative Alpine environment of the Alpe Giumello, crossing through a rare dwarf mountain pine wood to the Giggio forest.
