This panoramic high-altitude excursion, between water, earth and sky, will take you from the shores of Lake Maggiore to the mountains in Ronco s/Ascona, thus letting you discover one of the most amazing characteristics of the Locarnese National Park Project: diversity! After driving to the suggestive village center of Purera or Porera, the grandest mountain in Ronco, where there are ancient buildings dating between 1643 and 1670, you will continue on foot along the forest road towards Pozzuolo. Here, you will find the sixteenth-century Oratory of the Virgin of Pozzuolo (1250m), restored in 1990, leading to the site where a large fire occurred a few years ago. The road ends just below Cason. You will return following the same route, or the path above the Oratory. This excursion is ideal for the summer and winter.
Mountain equipment, clothing and shoes are strongly recommended.
In the Monti di Ronco area there are several typical «grotti».
