Alternative routes

A more challenging and steeper hill route can be climbed by following the path from Prugiasco towards the Negrentino church. This path allows you to admire from far below the beautiful architecture of the apses and the bell tower. If you prefer a longer itinerary, you can start from Acquarossa heading towards Prugiasco, with a stop in Negrentino, returning to Comprovasco via Leontica.
