Circuit Path Val Lavizzara

A technically very difficult tour through the beautiful high Maggia Valley. From Prato Sornico we climb to Veia on the little-used main road, from where the first tour returns to Prato Sornico on a single track road technically without equal. The second tour takes us out of the valley to Broglio and then up to Monte di Rima. A magnificent view over the valley awaits here, and a technically attractive descent that takes us back to the starting point. Highlights: Sornico Community House Church of S Martino Peccia Village of marble for antonomasia. Visit the marble sculpting school and the footpath of sculptures, a footpath used as a platform to present work, where new sculptures are added annually. Monti di Rima Small church and panoramic view over the valley Mogno (Fusio) Church of San Giovanni Battista, restored by the architect Mario Botta in 1996.
