The natural spectacle of the Ciano ravines
Il paesaggio unico delle spettacolari creste “a lama di coltello” dei calanchi di Ciano a Zocca
The spectacle that nature provides in Ciano is characteristic and peculiar. The force of continuous and slow erosion has in fact dug out over the centuries, knife-edge ridges interspersed with small V-shaped valleys: ravines, creating a sinuous movement in the area. Wonderful brooms, dog roses and wild orchids make this environment, where vegetation, especially tall trees, struggle to grow, a suggestive and almost surreal landscape, surrounded by green hills, full of high-quality grapes, which descend from Ciano to the plain. A natural context for the little village of Ciano and its historical-cultural beauties: the church of San Lorenzo, which dates back to the early 20th century and houses a fine organ, the rural centre with the 18th century oratory called “I Boschi” and the ruins of the castle walls and the oratory in Castellaccio.
