Caulana

The rural tourism complex "Valli-Caulana" is in the Caltea valley along the road connecting Barcis with the Piancavallo plateau and is the result of a careful restoration of the old Alpine farming settlement. In the rocky pastures of the hogback it is not hard to encounter the edelweiss. This species, which has become the symbol of the Alpine environment, is in fact a plant coming from arid areas. Downhill, you can't miss a stopover at the Barcis lake.
