Bormio 360 - Tappa 5 - Sentiero dei minerali

Don Zaccaria, Sondalo's parish priest from 1878, and passionate about history, loved to search the territory for clues that would reveal traces of the past. Thanks to him, finds of considerable mineralogical value were discovered. So many that he declared Sondalo contains such a wealth of rocks as to be able to provide a complete treatise on mineralogy. Along the trail there are: Anatase, Apatite, Tourmaline, Zircon, native Arsenic, and quartz, which are extracted in an active industrial quarry. Along the way, it will also be possible to observe various sanatoriums, which combined with the forest environment, form an extraordinary architectural and landscape design, making the hillside a unique cultural area in Italy and Europe.
