turismo valle camonica

The parks

Camonica Valley, a typically U-shaped glacial valley, extends north to south for over 80 km, following the course of the Oglio River. From the Toline area near Pisogne – the southern boundary of the valley at 200 mt a.s.l. – it rises to 1883 mt at Tonale Pass, the northern boundary.

The eight rock art parks of Camonica Valley are set along this area, starting from the lower valley at Lake Moro Intermunicipal Park, comprising Luine Park and the Corni Freschi archaeological site in Darfo Boario Terme, all the way to “Coren delle Fate”, a polythematic pathway in Sonico, the highest park in the Valley.

The central part of Camonica Valley presents the most important concentration of rock art. Between the towns of Ceto and Sellero, going through Capo di Ponte, one can visit the National Parkof Rock Engravings at Naquane, the Rock Engravings Nature Reserve of Ceto, Cimbergo, Paspardo, the National Archaeological Park of Massi di Cemmo (Cemmo’s Boulders), the Municipal Archaeological Park of Seradina-Bedolina and the Municipal Archaeological and Mineral Park of Sellero.

Differing in elevation and in route morphology, the parks offer peculiar naturalistic aspects of great interest, changing from zone to zone: the chestnut woods, typical of the middle valley, gradually give in to a vegetation of warmer climates along the western slope, in theMunicipal Archaeological Park of Seradina-Bedolina. Thus, beside the historical and artistic value of rock art, the environment and the countryside add to the emotion of being there.
