This stage is a bit more demanding than the previous one, both for the numerous ups and downs encountered, and for the few villages crossed where you can refuel or interrupt the journey.
However, the beauty of the landscapes and the panoramic views will gratify the walkers.
Senale is a place of pilgrimage but once also a transit point for wayfarers or pilgrims to Rome, along the Romea or Francigena ways, or towards the Mediterranean ports to get to Jerusalem. Along the way we come to Lauregno, a German-speaking village formed by many centuries-old mountain farms, whose central nucleus was formed around the ancient parish church with outside the typical Tyrolean cemetery with wrought iron crosses. In Corte Inferiore, the small church of S. Udalrico is worth a visit, rich in precious fifteenth-century frescoes by Giovanni and Battista Baschenis.
Before departure, get water and food as they are immersed in a fascinating but very isolated mountain environment.
The stamp to be affixed on the Credenziale del Pellegrino (Pilgrim's Credential) is near:
Senale - Sanctuary of Unsere Liebe Frau im Walde
Lauregno - Church of S.Vito
Corte Inferiore - Church of S.Udalrico (at bar Podetti)
Marcena di Rumo - Church of S.Paolo

The Path is well signposted, with the presence of the symbol of the stylised shell in yellow and various tables indicating the way. You can follow ancient paths connecting small towns and ancient roads that led to the sanctuaries, destination of pilgrimages. There are short stretches of roads with little traffic.
Please note that the practicability of the itineraries in a mountain environment is strictly linked to the contingent conditions and is therefore influenced by natural phenomena, environmental changes and weather conditions. For this reason, the information contained in this page may have changed. Before leaving for a tour, make sure the path you will approach is still accessible by contacting the owner of the mountain hut, the alpine guides or the visitor centres of the nature parks, the info offices of the local tourist board.
Tips and hints
Dalla piazza di Senale si prosegue in direzione Sud-Ovest, seguendo la segnaletica del Cammino Jacopeo fino al maso Urban e poi si segue il sentiero n. 1 in direzione Lauregno passando per la loc. Cros de La Barba a quota 1400 nel Comune di Castelfondo. Dopo una lunga discesa si raggiunge Lauregno, un villaggio germanofono formato da molti masi di montagna centenari.
Dalla piazza antistante la Chiesa si imbocca un sentiero e poi una stradina in salita e il sentiero nr. 2 che attraverso un paesaggio misto di boschi e prati porta sulla strada provinciale lungo il torrente Pescara. Si imbocca una stradina piuttosto ripida che ci porta fino al maso Korbler per poi scendere lungo comoda strada forestale a Corte Inferiore, uno dei villaggi che compongono il Comune di Rumo. Qui merita visitare la chiesetta di S. Udalrico, ricca di preziosi affreschi quattrocenteschi realizzati da Giovanni e Battista Baschenis poi proseguiamo fino a Marcena fine tappa.

Author’s map recommendations
EquipmentAnyone who sets out and wants to get to their destination without problems must wear a good pair of comfortable shoes, preferably with a sculpted sole (like Vibram) and ankle protection (like hiking pedules), but in which the foot is firmly fixed to prevent the formation of blisters or, worse still, risk a sprain. It is also good to have a stick (or better still, telescopic sticks) to help you along the way, especially in some more challenging passages.
