The area

Groppodalosio is about 10 km (6 miles) from Pontremoli (15-20 minutes by car). The little town of Pontremoli owes its name to the Latin Ponte Tremulus, a wobbly bridge which crossed the river Magra during the time of Arrigo VI (around 1100-1200 A.D.). Today Pontremoli is a town with a rich cultural and artistic history. To cross its ancient bridges, wander down its little cobbled alleyways and across its unspoilt piazzas is like leafing through a history book. Following the alleyways uphill through the medieval part of the town you will reach the Castello del Piagnaro which houses the famous collection of prehistoric Statue Stele, primitive monolithic sandstone sculptures which meaning is still a mistery. In Pontremoli you can find all commodities: shops, resaurants, banks, a post office, pharmacies, sport facilities (swimming pool, a golf club, tennis courts etc). It hosts also important events such as the Bancarella Book Prize, or Medievalis, or tipical fiere like those of San pietro in June or San Terenziano in September.
