SERRARA - EPOMEO: journey through space and time
We start from the municipality of Serrara (at the Bracconiere restaurant) and continue to enter a wild and fascinating landscape, up to the Frassitelli wood,
a terrace of dense acacias. Continuing along the path you dive into the Falanga wood; here among the chestnut trees it is possible to find the typical snow pits and the so-called Stone Houses.
The crossing in the woods continues up to the top of the island, Punta San Nicola, through a channel dug into the steep rock, where there is the homonymous hermitage dug into the tuff. The route ends with the arrival at the assembly point for the final party.
