The ancient town of Capoliveri came to us perfectly preserved thanks to "Vantina," a beautiful girl who convinced Napoleon to withdraw his attacking troops. Here starts the mine trekking to the discovery of the Miniere di Calamita Cantiere Vallone magnetic mines; you will make a stop at the little square dedicated to the beautiful young girl, which is located in the ancient mining town.
