This is a tour of great historical and religious interest. Start off at Fungaia and hike on very mild inclines towards S. Colomba and S. Leonardo al Lago. This was an important medieval hermitage, witness the series of frescoes that decorate the walls inside the church.Populated by a large religious community during the 12th century, S. Leonardo al Lago was located in a thick wood (Silva Lacus) that touched the shores of an ancient lake. From here you can easily reach the entrance to the Grand Duke’s Tunnel. This was an important underground sluiceway ordered by the Grand Duke Leopold to reclaim Pian del Lago.
