Along the way we will walk through the amazing Vallebuia (“the dark valley”), where we will admire the ruins of water mills. The Valley of Mills it’s on the slopes of Montalbano hill: its green and lush forest, the freshness of the stream, small villages, parish churches and the history of the area where Leonardo spent his childhood are the highlights of our day. You will feel like you are immersed on his painting as the landscape is very familiar to a lot of his works. We will loop back to the parking lot where we met to start the walk.
