The trail winds along mule tracks and paths deep in the woods, from Crabbia up to the peak of Mount Barro of Agrano. Here, just outside the woods, on the top of a rock, there is a natural panoramic terrace from which a spectacular sight on lake Orta’s basin can be seen. On the highest point, known as “muntagnin dal zicar”, there is a cross placed by Gruppo Alpini.
The trail proceeds downwards towards Agrano town where, inside a chapel, the “Dead woman of Agrano” is kept. This is a mummy, found in 1792 in the graveyard, the body of a woman, perfectly preserved, as reported by priest G. Bassetti: “I have myself observed: the skin, I say, still elastic, the nails, the fingers still intact…”. This sparked interest at that time, a lot of curiosity among the inhabitants, so much that the mummy was considered miraculous. Today, thanks to “Memento Mori” association, the “Dead woman of Agrano” has been restored and placed in a glassy display case that grants its preservation.
