Along this trail it’s impossible not to be enchanted by the beauty of the area of Torello (including the church with its convent, the old farmhouse and the surrounding meadows), by the Church of Ongero with its Way of the Cross, by the Alpe Vicania with its pasturelands and the inviting restaurant (seasonal opening) and just before reaching Carona, by the botanical park of San Grato; the latter, with the diversity of its flora, its thematic paths and restaurant, represents the ideal spot to take a break and rest.
