A peaceful walk through the Bleggio countryside.

This walk passes through fields, woods and along the banks of river Duina. The itinerary is characterized by uphills and downhills, with quite steep stretches, but it isn’t a difficult one.

Turn-by-turn directions

Starting from the centre of Cavrasto, set off for Balbido along a gentle slope leading out of town until you reach the main road which you will follow, bearing left towards Balbido. As you come to the entrance of the village, just before the church rising on the right, take the paved road on the left that runs downhill through apple orchards and fields until you reach S. Giustina’s church. The church’s origins have been traced back to 1360; the date is recorded in an inscription, from 1664, located to the left side of the presbytery. Pass the cemetery and keep to the right side of the church; the track unwinds in the forest behind the church on a steep path and continues along a cattle track which leads swiftly through the small valley of Duina and to the Bronzini's pig farm, formerly called Mulino del Peota, (The Peota's Mill), located on the left bank of the stream. Walk down the only paved road that runs along the bottom of the valley until you reach the main road near a bridge. On your right, facing downstream, you will see “Casa delle Fusine”, a renovated country house, formerly a blacksmith workshop. Follow the main road, going uphill towards the left, to return to Cavrasto.
