Arriving at Palanfrè after traveling along the little road up to the Valle Grande through the trees gives you a magnificent sensation. The landscape opens with wide grasslands framed by the pale calcareous rocks of the summits. The small village of Palanfrè, which is protected from avalanches by a beech tree wood, has preserved the features of a traditional village. Houses have been renovated maintaining the local building style. The Nature Trail is an hour's walk through the beech wood, which has been preserved since the 19th century and is therefore reach in ancient and contorted specimens.
