The process of paper production, as you will discover, is intrinsically linked to the woods and mills, and the role of water as one of the most important raw materials cannot be overstated. Therefore, to explore the territory of the Svizzera Pesciatina is an absolut must, and this means a visit to its ten characteristic villages, or "Castella", perched atop hills and still beautifully intact. The centers of San Lorenzo a Cerreto, Pietrabuona, Medicina, Fibbialla, Aramo, San Quirico, Castelvecchio, Stiappa, Pontito, Sorana, Vellano are all well worth a visit.
The mountainous and medieval nature of this area make it best accessible by car. This unique and stunning landscape offers an amazing feast for both the eyes and soul.
