This itinerary includes interesting natural and historical features and coincides with a valley that was already used in previous centuries for the passage from Val d’Aosta to Valsesia. At 2480 m on Col Valdobbia, stands a hospice built by Canon Nicolao Sottile at the start of the 19th century, and today used as a refuge.
