An interesting itinerary, rich with many testimonials tied to the past times of Brione s/Minusio and with indications on information boards along the way.
Starting at the Church square the path leads through the suggestive old part of the village and then rises up to the forest along the ancient path of the Cappella Rotta until Tendrasca and then following on until above Viona. This path is ideal for everyone and leads through a very precious natural environment.
The route starts from the piazza in front of the Casa Comunale, crosses the heart of the village, climbs up the ancinets mule-path towards Cappella Rotta and ends just above Viona in Val Resa. The mule-path is a historical monument in itself, and, even before the 15thC, connected Locarno to Brione s/Minusio and Mergoscia.
Following this 2.5 km path by foot one comes across objects of historical and cultural interest, and beside each one there is a small explanatory panel containing old photographs, a text written in four languages and a map of the route to follow.
This is a sort of open-air museum – in which significant objects bear witness to a past that has been all but forgotten.
