Sondrio's green soul
To: Piazza Garibaldi
CHANGE IN ALTITUDE
This itinerary allows to discover Sondrio's green soul: this ancient city is rich in history but is able to renew itself by valorizing its green areas.
STAGE 1: PARCO BARTESAGHI
Parco Bartesaghi has a surface of 20 hectares and lays at the confluence of the Mallero and the Adda rivers. It has cycling paths, a refreshment stand and several playgrounds.
STAGE 2: CREEK MALLERO
Mallero is the creek of the town and is crossed by seven bridges. A new protected trail links parco Bartesaghi and the town center.
STAGE 3: SANTUARIO DELLA MADONNA DELLA SASSELLA
The evocative Santuario della Madonna della Sassella is nestled on a rocky spur at the gates of Sondrio and is surrounded by the typical terraced vineyards where a renown red wine is produced: the Valtellina Superiore DOCG Sassella.
STAGE 4: TRIASSO
Triasso is a district of Sondrio, marked out by an ancient housing cluster built on the sunlit hillside and protected from the floods of creek Mallero and river Adda.
STAGE 5: THE VINEYARD ROUTE
The Vineyard Route is a 70 km long trail that connects Morbegno to Tirano, running at an altitude ranging from 300 to 700 m on the Rhaetic hillside, across the wonderful landscape of the terraced vineyards.
STAGE 6: PIAZZETTA CARBONERA
The center of the Cantone quarter hosts Palazzo Carbonera (Sixteenth century), a noble dwelling that originally belonged to the Parravicini family.
STAGE 7: PIAZZA GARIBALDI
Piazza Garibaldi was built by the Hapsburgs at the beginning of the Nineteenth century as a gateway to the city. The square still preserves its sober neoclassical charme, thanks to buildings like the Teatro Sociale - designed on the model of the Teatro alla Scala -, but also Casa Lambertenghi, Banca d'Italia and Grand Hotel della Posta.
