Ca del Pitur
Cicogna is regarded as the small “capital” of the National Park Val Grande. Ponte Casletto (Casletto bridge) and the river underneath (Rio Val Grande) mark the natural borders of the park. Cicogna is the starting point for many fascinating paths. Some of them are just for expert hikers; others are suitable also for families.
