Plotta

From the farm you can admire the mighty rock face of the Creta della Chianevate (2,718 m), which overlooks the Creta dei Monumenz (monuments), owing its name to the characteristic erosions in the calcareous rocks marked by grooves. In Paluzza, in an area called Enfretors, you can see the Moscarda tower from the 13th century, an ancient bastion of the efficient customs defensive system name "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, houses a 3.3-ton wooden crucifix and the ossuary.
