  • We were visiting the potholes are beautiful. See what he can do the water over millions of years. Worth a visit are passing with the Red bernina train stop to visit the mufflers

  • It's really been an interesting walk to these erosion, you see these conformations of the rocks. The signs are really minimal, the schema of the path is unclear (and I'm a hiker abitudinario). With the turning then to the path of the engravings ... lacks not much signage, ferns on the trail. In my view, a place so advertised would need more care.

  • After a hearty lunch, taking advantage of the wonderful day, we started looking for mufflers ... Walking up and down quite casually, we spent the afternoon wandering through the park without aimè find the mufflers, but discovering a wonderful Lookout, of rock engravings and various glacial phenomena. The area is very nice, lends itself to walking more or less intense, pity that the signs could be in short supply, both for the paths for both clarity of objectives. The area itself loved so we will return for sure.

  • The Parco delle Marmitte dei Giganti is located just outside of Chiavenna. Includes inside the natural reserve currently managed by the mountain community of Valchiavenna. The Park is easily accessible following the signs along the trails and old mule tracks that once led to the stone quarries ollàre. Some signs show the main items of interest of the Park: the glacial phenomena and the potholes, the extraction of the stone ollàre and the stone carvings, the Park also hosts a permanent exhibition of contemporary art GIGART, commissioned by the city of Chiavenna and the mountain community to enhance the cultural and tourist offer of the Valley.

  • A short distance from the center of Chiavenna you can enjoy a fantastic view over the Valley. The Park is particular, with large rocks stuck together, as if by magic. The hike is easy and short but well worth it, even just to hear some cool and mountain air.

  • Nice walk to do with kids. The trail is clearly visible and safe, on the way you will encounter some nice points equipped with tables and benches for picnics
