Col Mezzodì Bassa

Recently renovated, it keeps an engraved stone located in the outer wall of the farm, near the entrance door, which celebrates the grazing activity of far-off 1923. It is set on a panoramic terrace embellished by blooming elder-flowered orchids (Dactylorhiza sambucina) and cowslips (Primula veris).
