Alpe Boron

From the San Colombano refuge climb west along path N280. After the Church of San Colombano, in the village of Prei, continue along path N208 to join path N286, then on to the Alpe Boron. This path is on a road with natural scenic points at Prei and at San Colombano. At the beginning of the ascent that leads up to the small church of San Colombano there is a spring, one of the Springs of San Carlo, which, according to pagan belief, had extraordinary healing powers. During the Christian era, the small temple there was rededicated to St. Colombanus, the bringer of fertility: many women came as pilgrims seeking a cure for infertility. Legend tells of a woman who, after her pilgrimage, was blessed with the ability to have children. After the birth of the sixth child she returned to the church to thank the saint and ask him to suspend the blessing.
