Starting from Carceri town, our first visit is the Abbey of Santa Maria delle Carceri, an abbey founded by Augustinian monks in the 12th century. Continuing our route, along river banks on the river Frassine we will admire the Water absorbing station Vampadore, which was built in 1880 it shows off all of its beauty inside of a really amazing building, then we will see the Bridge Bailey, one of the first bridges completely that can be dismantled and re-mountable in any place, made for the purpose of the war, wood and stainless steel.
In the area of Megliadino San Vitale, in addition to stopping for a tasty lunch in an Inn, we’ll visit later the ancient Church of the Aconense in Megliadino San Vitale which is an ancient icon, venerated since in the lombard age, hidden and protected today by another decoration, behind the high altar. Finally, in the locality of Ponso we stop to admire another ancient church dating probably from the 9th century. it is the Church of Santa Maria dei Prà (or of The Meadows) also called “La Ciesazza”.
A path, which will allow you not only to discover some of the beautiful scenery of a rural area still little explored, but also to appreciate a land of timeless charm and still very much tied to the traditions and the daily life of the past.
