The oak tree and Via Roccolino

The oak tree and Via Roccolino


Via del Roccolino begins with an ancient specimen of English oak. The oak was the queen of the forest that dates back before the city was founded.

The tree, uncommon in urban environments, is easy to recognise for its lobed leaves and acorns held by a long branch. The road, whose name recalls the ancient presence of a bird snare, leads to the beautiful village of Valverde, at the base of the Upper Town.
