The itinerary offers the possibility to enter the alpine community where a peasant mentality is very rooted. The starting point is near the Door of the of the Orobian Park in Albaredo ; it’s a didactic and informative centre equipped with video and multimedia rooms (they are going to be prepared), and it works in connection with “Cà Priula”, an inn with forty beds, divided into rooms for students and double rooms.
The path crosses the Priula Road, known also as the S. Marco Road, that was built between the end of XVI and the beginning of XVII century, thanks to Alvise Priuli, podestà of Bergamo from 1591 to 1593.
The interesting things that can be observed along the itinerary are:
- typical rural buildings used to produce the famous Bitto cheese along with the milk-cheese working;
- rests of a sawmill used until the beginning of 1900;
- little space for the fabrication of the charcoal, that was produced using an ancient process;
- the “bàit del lat”, a special building made of stones used on the pastures to preserve milk;
- little huts, known as “budulere”, partially buried and crossed by a small trickle that guarantees chilliness and constant humidity;
- iron forges, nearly at the end of the Bitto Valley, known from 1932.
