The beautiful Camonica Alpine Valley

valle1Val Camonica is 90km long and contains 41 towns and villages, making it the second longest valley in Italy. The healing powers of the waters of the spa town of Boario Terme, in lower Val Camonica, were written about as early as 1497 by the naturalist Paracelsus. The Italian writer Manzoni was a regular visitor to Val Camonica, living to the age of 88. Nearby at the Capo di Ponte (Mid Val Camonica) is the National Rock Engraving Park, with prehistoric rock carvings, dating from Neolithic times through to the Iron Age. The carvings relate to the history of the Camuni tribe throughout this period. It is an amazing site, containing thousands of figures: an enormous stone history book. One of the most common carvings is that of the Camonic rose, which is now the emblem of the Lombardy region.
