Some sightseeing around Polpenazze and Manerba
EXCURSION TO THE ROCCA PARK
The Rocca Park consists of a rocky peak and 90 hectacres of headland with woods, meadows, cultivated grounds. From the car parking at Montinelle, all Northern streets lead to the
Rocca with the big cross on top.
All paths lead North to the highest point of the headland from where the view is breathtaking. From here you can follow the exact perimeter of the headland down to Porto Dusano, first East and then South, and return along the road to Montinelle. The car has to be left on the Montinelle parking, as there is no
parking possibility on the headland und only very little at Porto Dusano.
VALLE DELLE CARTIERE TOSCOLANO
The Valle Delle Cartiere with its historical paper factories are situated in the mountain valley between the two cities.
Driving from Maderno to Toscolano we cross the bridge on the river Toscolano and at the town hall we turn left in the direction of Gaino. At the crossroads we do not climb towards Gaino but we drive
straight ahead. At the beginning of the Cartiere Valley the tar ends and after the second tunnel we park on the car parking to the left. On foot we follow the easy path along the Toscolano stream,
along the ruins of the ancient paper factories, of which the last one, in Maina Inferiore, still functioned until the sixties. Here and there a stone staircase permits us to reach the river level. Observe the
particular morphology of the valley due to the action of glaciers. The paper factory of Maina Inferiore has been reconstructed and transformed into a museum that can be visited.
