We will cross the town to reach the Lavatoi (old wash tubs), where we will test some handcrafted soap made from wild plants. An explanation regarding the techniques of desiccation, preservation, extraction and the use of plant-based drugs will follow. The route then leads to the Monastery of Saint Catherine, and continues to Mount Strega and Mount Capannello. The guided excursion is organised by the herbalist Giacomo Cadoni.
