cascate_monticelli_2In the territory of Monticelli Brusati, from the centre of the village Gaina, into the hearth of Franciacorta, it begins this unusual path (from the town, following the directions for Villa Baiana and then Gaina).

With the support of the useful white-pink signs, the road goes through the lawns till the narrow and suggestive canyon of a stream, characterized by various rocky stratifications.

This is said to be the highlight of the whole run, the most interesting and difficult part. Passing many times over the water, on the settled stones that facilitate the crossing, it comes then to a series of waterfalls to overcome with the aid of metallic staircases, made up of  pegs and chains fixed in the rock.

Fascinating it’s the head graven in a rock, nearby one of the waterfalls.  cascate_monticelli_3
The whole trail develops into a wood with dense vegetation, then ideal as a summer itinerary. On the way of return toward Monticelli, it’s recommended the visit to the Madonna della Rosa Sanctuary. 

This path is provided with two variations to suit every kind of people.
