Hidden in the valley of Candalla, just 15 miles from Lucca and Pisa, we have a magical landscape of green forests, old ruins of mills, factories, creeks, medieval fortifications, caves, traditional villages. . . . What else do we need? This itinerary is a real gem, hidden to locals too! We can discover this land of centenary tradition, when people once used the fruits of the forest like chestnuts and olives to survive and until at the end of 19th century they used the power of water to produce chestnut flour, olive oil or even pasta. Here you can see the ruins of the second oldest pasta factory of Tuscany! Along the trails we will stop to admire two caves where rests of the Stone Age were found and the remainings of two powerful fortications belonged to the city of Pisa
Ciao! My name is Veronica and "discovering" is MY word! Thanks to my studies in languages I started to travel the world when I was very young and I could build my acknowledge about other cultures abroad. I love to meet people and get to know other countries with their different traditions in art, food, (and wines!) and stories. I am an environmental and hiking guide and I will be very pleased to share my knowledge about the territory with you! There is so much to learn to understand a culture and nature is the key, with its vegetation, wildlife and its geological history. The best thing that we can do when we travel is trying to feel like a localnd diving in their everyday life; I will help you to experience it, beeing not only a tourist but becoming a traveller. What are you waiting for? Andiamo! Let's go!
We start from the mill of Candalla, then we hike along a millenary mule track to the village of Casoli, following the stream. Short break in Casoli and on the way to the next traditional village, we stop to visit 2 ancient caves and the ruins of the first medieval castle. We follow the path to Metato and Montecastrese, the biggest medieval fortification in XIII century. After the visit of the remainings, descent to the starting point.
