Monte Brugiana becomes immediately visible once you take the Massa exit. One can catch a glimpse of the mountain’s unmistakable white marble that stands out against the dark green of its forest-covered slopes. A historic quarry, now closed, was the cause of this geological ‘scar’ which bears witness to the fact that this territory and its inhabitants have always engaged in working with marble.
From the ridges of Monte Brugiana, one can view the entire Alpine region, as well as the coast of Versilia, Portovenere and Palmaria. You’ll also be able to spot the Tyrrhenian Sea with the islands of Gorgona, Elba and Capraia.
