A walk from Loreno to the nearby Grotta del Prete

Short walk on the mountain that can be seen behind the Loreno church in search of the remains of the old Loreno castle destroyed by the Borgias.

Near the easily identifiable path there are some abandoned structures for storage of work tools or other, as well as numerous terraces.

A little further down from the path you can see the ruins of the church of the Madonna delle Grazie

The top of “il Monte”.

View on the Valnerina.

I did not find the priest’s cave, not in the location indicated by the maps. This is the only cave found, much further upstream.

What could be the ruins of the Lorino castle, I have not found any obvious sign that can testify to the presence of a tower or other.
