Theme Trails – Monte San Salvatore

With Bafalòn hunting treasure

This is a circular path along the nature trail, for children and parents or school classes.

with little difference in altitude and breath-taking views over magnificent panoramas, that starts near the San Salvatore Museum.

A trail you can complete by following playful, interactive signage (7 panels) with texts in four languages created by the illustrator Simona Meisser. Whilst walking you can catch sight of birds close up and discover ancient rocks, trees, flowers, insects and animals which you’re unlikely to find anywhere else.

The youngest excursionists will be able to visit the home of Bafalòn, the house in the trees next to the playground. This place, in the middle of beautiful nature, provides a truly wonderful place for children to play.
