At the beginning of the valley seven crosses were built in 1656 to keep away the witches, who were thought to cast courses on the inhabitants, causing damages to the villages and the fields. This itinerary isn’t a strenuous one and it’s perfect also for children and seniors, as long as trained. In fact, you will have to face a steep climb that will bring you up at 1580 metres. Val Marcia, located at the south end of Bleggio, is enclosed by Mount Altissimo and Mount Cogorna and traversed by the river Duina and its little tributaries. Discover this wild valley and admire such an untouched territory offering many wonderful glimpses.
