- INTEREST: historical-cultural
From the central piazza of Romagnano, the path climbs into the historical centre, and turns left - southward - and, after the last house on the right, takes a mule track marked SAT 614, which climbs up the mountain. You continue along the SAT marked trail until you reach Dos Brun, where there are caves and military structures dating back to the Great War. Not much further and the route reaches a dirt road above the town of Romagnano, where trail SAT 614 "Guardadocio" climbs up towards Garniga Vecchia. Now going right, you reach a clearing used as a parking area, where you can take an interesting walk called "Giro di Margon", which makes this route 1.6 km longer, allowing you to visit the forests and vineyards around Villa Margon. If you are not interested in this detour, from the parking area you continue towards Maso Maset, passing a few Oaks (Quercus Cerris), one of which is quite majestic, until you reach a fork. At this point it is possible to reach Villa Margon, a beautiful example of Sixteenth century noble residence, sumptuously decorated and frescoed. It is privately owned, and can be visited on Wednesdays and Saturdays. Once you have returned to the main road, at the fork you turn right, going downhill, passing by the Romagnano Fort, which is now a private residence. You continue until the end of the road and take a path that runs alongside a vineyard until it reaches a panoramic point, above a defensive military structure. You soon reach a little road which, through fields, leads you back to the starting point.
Don't miss: fortifications, the Cerro, Villa Margon, views.
