The pearls of the Malvaglia Valley

Dagro lies on a sunlit terrace from which the gaze is gently caught and held by a magnificent panorama of peaks and valleys which smilingly play hide and seek with their admirers.

Then there is the fascination of its constructions, pressed against each other, in a superb embrace of dwellings and barns, wood and stone, light and shade, perfumes and colours, voices and silence: a work of art created when futility had not yet superseded essentials. But that is not all, and to convince oneself of that, all one need do is to set off along the numerous and still well marked paths, remnants from the subsistence farming economy of past centuries, which spread out from Dagro to the rest of the valley.
