The village you will meet on your journey shortly after, is still characteristically rustic. Nevertheless, S. Gregorio Magno church has been an autonomous parish from 1710 to 1986: on its façade it is represented the S. Marco’s lion, and it is framed between the lake and mountains landscape.
There is a small cemetery too, it gives the visitor an idea of the ancient expectations, events and lives of the people who used to inhabit this territory. Next to the cemetery the route goes back in the chestnut grove and brings you among different valleys, like the Val Grande, the northern border with Dervio citizens. When you reach Pratolungo farmsteads, you can take the uphill path that will lead you to the Pratolungo mountain pasture.
