After a quite long trip through a narrow and binding road you can find on top of a mountain a building whose architectural features remind of the old alpine resorts throughout Europe. The building has a restaurant with a big salon furnished with art deco...More

This is a relatively short but reasonably demanding walk. It is good exercise and being almost 1000m high and wooded a welcome relief from the sun. It is a nice drive there through the valleys and small villages. Park you car in the car park...More
