To get the basics on using map and compass or be followed by an orienteering instructor with more information.

The ways that we invite you to take lead in touch cultural emergencies such as the ancient Church of Santa Margherita, the first monument sign of Christianity on thePlateau of 7 Municipalities. The building ranks as building around 1100 and is located right in the center of the more "historical" of Highland: between Bostel -site of the first human settlement-and the Altarknotto -sacrificial Area dedicated to the pagan gods with the nearby Summit of Altaburg.

There are, to date, many documents concerning the origin of the Church of Santa Margherita. Her story, in fact, is only partly collected in the oral tradition handed down even in official documents, in fact, that the Bishop's visitation report of 1602 you post that "this was the first Church of seven municipalities".

Nearby places overlooking the Val d Assa, where once practiced pastoralism and agriculture in small spaces with a breathtaking view of the Pasubio and the Cimone mount with Tonezza. Upon returning from the campaign go through the village of Rotzo to return to the starting point.
