L'escursione

The ingenuity of man has always created wonders ... Among the many present in the Land of Tuscany, the magnificent nineteenth-century aqueduct by the architect Lorenzo Nottolini also finds the spotlight. The walk will make us know, along easy paths, the high arches that led the pure waters of the Serra Vespaiata and Rio San Quirico and the Valley up to the walls of Lucca. We will admire the water decantation cisterns and the pipelines made as a “work of art” by expert hands that have remained unknown in the memory of the time. We will climb up to the "Parole d'oro", a place of water collection, so called by the local farmers, believing that the inscription on a memorial stone of the aqueduct was forged in gold ...
