Type of route: The Castle Gorge is one of the most mysterious, isolated and inaccessible corners of the Lima Valley. It is a dry gorge for most of the year, as the cavernous limestone substrates wallows the rainwater that runs deep into the gorge, making way for huge caves, concretions, porous formations covered in moss and ancient forests. The gorge is accessible only by fording the Lima river ( which is why it is not very popular!) right in front of our base. In summer you can do it walking in the water, but if the water level rises, then we use a raft as a ferry. An environmental guide will explain the characteristics and history of the place, which takes its name from the remains of an ancient castle and hermitage located at the top of the valley. On the way back, you can swim in the Lima river.
This place is very suitable for evocative excursions for families with children, who will not fail to find gnomes, fairies and goblins.
