Foppe di Nadro



A very interesting Regional Park is situated at Foppe di Nadro, not far from Capo di Ponte and in the border of Naquane National Park. Many large polished rocks show thousands of figures.

More than 100 pairs of footprints (middle Iron Age) in rock n.6, Bronze Age weapons and Iron Age itifallic warriors at rock n. 4, huts and camunnian roses at rock n. 24.

At the beginnig of the Park you can find a wodden sperimental reconstruction in natural size of an
Iron Age granary, like the ones engraved.

Other important sites at Bedolina (well-known Iron Age topographic engravings),

Seradina (rock n. 12 is one the largest, with interesting ploughing scenes),

Corni Freschi di Darfo (Copper Age halberds),

Sellero (Hercules' god representation, topographic engravings, cup--marks) and

Sonico (concentric and radiated circles, meanders, palettes).
