The thematic path in mid-Capriasca is an opportunity to rediscover the natural landscape, its animal and plant world, its historical-cultural roots and the different contexts of the lives of its inhabitants.

It crosses the villages, the countryside, the woods and the natural areas: environments that show the signs of the process of transformation and at the same time allow to know the achievements, the evidence and the way of life related to the peasant civilisation.
It offers the opportunity to admire significant cultural, civil and religious heritage, which are part of the rich historical evidence present in the territory of the municipality of Capriasca.
For the careful and curious observer there is the pleasure of discovering and appreciating this historical, cultural and natural heritage.
