Collina Grande

From this Alpine farm you can enjoy the imposing rocky group of Monte Coglians which, with its 2,780 m, is the highest peak of the FVG Region. At the southern slopes of Monte Coglians you can find the Abisso Marinelli, lying near the namesake shelter, which descends with a series of pits for around 150 m. In Paluzza, in an area called Enfretors, you can see the Moscarda tower dating from the 13th century, an ancient bastion of the efficient customs defensive system named "Castrum Moscardum". In Timau the "Fontanon”, a gorgeous perennial karst spring and the banned wood can be seen from the SS 52 bis road. The church of Cristo Re, which is particularly interesting, both historically and religiously, has a 3.3-ton wooden crucifix and the ossuary.
