Natureparc Ciciu-Park
“Ciciu” means puppet in the regional dialect. The puppets are the result of a geological phenomenon, thousands of years old, that caused the formation of these gigantic masses.

Some of these puppets measure up to 10 meters in height.

Some of these puppets measure up to 10 meters in height.

Continuing on for the town of Dronero, at 3 km., without entering the village, you take a right onto a road of which only the first part is paved.
