The rocks of the Monti Pisani

On the Monti Pisani

Skirting round the Spuntone di S. Allago you often find yourself cycling on the bare rocky substrata that comprises the skeleton of the Monti Pisani. In some parts the rock rises up vertically, forming a number of enormous rock faces that years ago an unknown artist decorated with elegant sculptures. For this reason it is recommended that you take your time over this stretch of the route so as not to miss these works which time and the elements are inexorably wearing away.
