Sentiero delle Ginestre (“Trail of Brooms”)
A simple ring-shaped trail in the hamlet of San Michele di Prazzo, a site of special botanical and naturalistic interest due to the variety of its micro-environments.
A trail that starts out from the hamlet of Allemandi which, along a smooth route into the hillside, reaches a vantage point on the Maira valley, descending along a hill among brooms, lavender and Scotch pine trees. Along the trail, you will spot evidence of the typical local architecture. You may even get to see the local wildlife. The difference in altitude is about 200 metres and the trail will take you around two hours to walk. Wooden sign-posts and yellow marks are scattered along the path. Presence of water fountains.
