The Lame Rosse and the museums of Fiastra
ACTIVE NATURE & MUSEUMS
The Flowery Slope of the Sibillini Mountains National Park hides in one side of Mount Fiegni a geological phenomenon as beautiful as it is rare due to the limestone nature in which it occurs.
They are the Lame Rosse (Red Blades), an erosive emergency that has shaped the entire area into unusual and suggestive shapes, creating a surreal and constantly evolving environment. Peaks, spiers and pinnacles that take the name of Fairy Chimneys together with walls furrowed by cracks that give life to small canyons at the base of which a real river of red gravel flows along the Fosso della Regina. The place makes you forget that you are in the Apennines and are instantly transported to Turkish Cappadocia or a corner of the American Grand Canyon.
Fiastra is one of the 18 municipalities of the Sibillini Park and its ancient origins are testified by the remains of the Castle of the Magalotti counts, today one of the Blue Fortresses, located on the highest point of the hill which dominates the lake of the same name and a trekking stop of the Great Ring of the Sibillini. Formed by the dam built in the 1950s, it is an important body of water set among the mountains along whose banks you can walk up to the Rufella viewpoint.
The Park House houses the interesting Chamois Museum which, with a route, illustrates its life and importance for the environment with films, panels and educational material, also in relation to the nearby wildlife area destined for its reintroduction into the Park.
