The main asset of this area is the abundance of water. It is not a coincidence that the local economy has a history of mills, iron factories and paper industries. It is not a coincidence that the wealth of fish has led to the multiplication of reserves and specifically regulated areas. No coincidence are the Thermal Baths. Everything here speaks the language of water. Water that carved the Apuan Alps’ heart, offering worldwide cavers a premium karst environment. Even on the surface, water shaped unique environments such as the Marmitte dei Giganti or the Botri canyon.
