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.
Can you see yourself getting to work on this one?
