On the way of alpine pastures-5: Monte Lema - Alpe Agario - Mugena

The Alpe Agario is characterised by wide meadows grazed by Scottish goats and cows and by the presence of the mountain pheasant. The amphitheatre Gradiccioli also offers the possibility of refreshment.

The trail take us from the summit of Monte Lema on the floor through the mountain pastures in a suggestive rural naturalistic landscape, rich in history and emotions between scents of rhododendrons and majestic beech woods, historical chestnut woods and old buildings as evidence of past labors.

You will be able to meet herds of cows, cows Scottish, herds of goats and horses grazing on colorful slopes, partly colonized in an almost intrusive way from the green alder in the upper part of the territory and from the broom and fern to the floor.
