Hiking The Cathedral's Marbles - Vallerano’s Black Marble
This great hike winds in the Basso Merse Nature Reserve, in search of the historical and hidden quarries of the so-called Vallerano black marble. Stretches of easy walk on dirt roads alternate to a small demanding part in the woods. An exciting ascent in a clean stream bed adds a touch of adventure to this easy loop. Furthermore, lost copper mines and the beautiful small village of Vallerano, a jewel of the province, complete the day.
