Volto Santo Pilgrim Route

This way was an alter­native route of the ancient Francigena Road, today known as the road of the "Volto Santo" (Holy Face) covers Lunigiana first and then Garfagnana region lands full of history and traditions, following old mule tracks and going through well preserved ancient hamlets.

In the past, it was used to skip the areas afflicted by malaria along the coast and pay homage to the wooden statue of the Holy Face, the Tunicate Christ cherished in the Cathedral of Saint Martin in Lucca, a pilgrimage since its mysterious and legendary disappearance.
