An easy trail near the village of Vezzano to discover 10 wells formed by glaciers.

In the thick of a coppice, black pine forest, take the Stoppani trail, named after the person who first discovered the glacial origin of the wells, which are generated along the lower slopes of the north-western slope of Monte Bondone. Here you can learn about the ancient history of the glacial wells and of those who, with passion, dedication and in-depth research, discovered their significance, recognising their value and handing it down to the next generations.
