The Pietra di Bismantova, sacred and almost magical mountain looks like a huge arenaceous rock with a peculiar conformation: it’s in fact a massive block of the Miocene limestone type, on top of which lies a vast grassy plateau of 12 hectares.
It is among the most renowned symbols of the Appennino tosco – emiliano National Park.

Everywhere from the ridge you can see its distinctive shape “of a cliff between the soft forage crops that connotes a unique Apennine landscape, with ancient human settlements, celebrated by travelers and poets such as Dante, a destination for climbing, hiking and pilgrimages.”
