Fornovolasco is a tiny village in the comune of Fabbriche di Vergemoli in the province of Lucca. It is one of many villages in the Garfagnana to be explored. It is 480 metres above sea level and has a population of fewer than 100people.
Two streams join in the village.
I crossed just past where they meet via a pretty bridge.
There is a delightful piazza on the other side of the bridge.
Several narrow streets take you through the village.
Across another bridge the streets climb steeply upwards.
Gardens are squeezed into small places.
I found a renovator’s delight waiting for a new roof.
The church was not open.
Back down the hill…
I found a tunnel leading to another group of houses.
The village restaurant, Rifugio la Buca, looks a bit like a Swiss chalet. It was not open the day I was there.
I walked back along the river to my car.
Every single village is different…there is always something interesting to see. Just past Fornovolasco you will find the Grotta del Vento.
I have not visited this one, but it looks really lovely. Thank you for sharing.
Each one of these villages has its own character.
I remember Fornovolasco being a lovely small village. After a delightful lunch at Antica Trattoria dell’Eremita at Eremo di Calomini we called down to visit Fornovolasco.
That’s a great place to eat, we go there often.
Thank you for sharing.
I enjoy exploring these small villages.
A beautiful little village, lovely to see
