We walk up to the historic centre of Filattiera, ancient fiefdom of the Malaspina family, featuring a restored private castle, the ancient St.James’ pilgrim hostel and the St. George’s Church. From here we walk along ancient mule tracks immersed in the woods as far as the fortified byzantine village of Filetto. Possibility to stop for a picnic lunch in the chestnut wood or at a local restaurant. Return by train at 13:33 from Villafranca-Bagnone or following trains.
