Pallegio

Pallegio has ancient origins. It was once a fortified stronghold guarding the Controneria area nearby. The village is not far from the Brennero Road towards Abetone.

It is a sleepy little village with 132 inhabitants. Come for a wander with me.

Like all of Bagni di Lucca’s mountain villages, there are wonderful views.

The narrow streets have many delights.

Soon it is back to the car park and time to say goodbye to Pallegio.

On the way back to the Brennero I found a road to the left and found what I think is the oratory of S.Maria della Quercia.

A little further on is a lovely wooded area and I found another renovator’s delight……there is a never ending supply of them in these parts.

  1. We love your blog so much. It captures the essence and simplicity of the Bagni area, which we adore. Having stayed in Crasciana, Vitiana and Pieve di Controne the villages ar4e close to our heart. On a dull day in Hampshire, your stories and photos warm the soul!

  2. Congrats on the super photos. In the summertime when we’re heading towards San Cassiano from the pool in Bagni we often go up the Pallegio way, particularly as the main route up to SC (via Guzzano etc) can be a bit busy. Pallegio has a charm all of its own, and yet its so typical of the villages above Bagni. One good reason to go the ‘Pallegio way’ is that it brings you to Santina’s in San Cassiano, a wonderful little bar/trattoria/eatery. Nice beer on draught, quite good wine, lovely pizza, pasta, and faroana – forgive the spelling ( a cross between pheasant and guinea fowl) delicious – actually I think it is guinea fowl.
