The Tiberius Cave

The Tiberius Cave is the final part of a wide natural hole system developing over more than 6 km with a difference in height of 223 meters. These caves drain the waters coming from the area of Mount Tondo. The underground streams, after an outside journey of about hundreds of meters, flow into the River Senio.
The caves develop on more levels: the upper tunnels were left by water due to the gradual fall of the river Senio's level.
Water, by dissolving the gypsum rocks, created an underground net of tunnels, wells and halls which, apart from the tourist stretch, are barely accessible.
The underground and outer mining activity met the caves in several stretches, partially destroyed them and changed the underground way of the water now flowing through an outside quarry tunnel.

Mt. Mauro

With its 515 meters, the summit of Mt. Mauro is the highest mountain of Vena del Gesso Romagnola and the site of greatest naturalistic and landscape interest of the Park.
The three summits of the mountain are set into a vast and wild system of crags and dolines covered by a thick shrubby and arboreal vegetation; the imposing southern slope offers spectacular panoramas and interesting settlements of rocky vegetation.

Riva di San Biagio

Riva di San Biagio is the longest gypsum rampart: it develops non-stop for over 5 km, from Borgo Rivola to Tossignano.
In order to appreciate the view of the imposing gypsum banks raising from the surrounding hills, it si recommended to follow the panoramic "Strada della Lavanda" (the Lavender Road), connecting Senio Valley, immediately before Casola Valsenio, with Santerno Valley at Fontanelice.
