San Luca and Crosara are well-known for their small productions of excellent quality chestnuts, which is the result of the work of some passionate local farmers.
Maintaining small and large chestnut trees is a very tiring and demanding activity. First of all, correct pruning is fundamental to have healthy and thriving plants, but it requires a lot of attention and prudence: in order to cut the dry, sick or surplus branches, you have to climb up to a height of even 30 meters to reach the tree foliage. Additionally, the underlying soil must be kept clean before harvesting the fruits and any dying tree must be replaced with a new one and new grafts. All these aspects should be remembered when you access a chestnut grove: you have to walk on your tiptoe and with utmost respect.
If you love photography and photo-walking, autumn is really the perfect season to discover or rediscover these places. In autumn, nature offers an incomparable sight: the woods are colored with spectacular shades of yellow, orange, red and gold, and they are imbued with extraordinary scents, which words cannot accurately describe. A combination of sensations that have the power to instill peace and balance, surrounded by land.
This is not merely about a naturalistic path: it is also a return to a not too far away time when chestnut trees were fundamental for the people of these hills. Chestnut flour was indispensable for the survival of entire generations of mountain people who had no access to cereals and meat.
