The highest point of Valconca brims with greenery. A verdant nature, an oasis filled with silence and light that offers infinite horizons.
In its territory, Onferno Caves can be found, protected by the homonymous nature reserve. Of both regional and national importance, they are the only natural caves in the Rimini area and can be easily reached and visited. An enchanting and unique location, both for its geological conformation and its unique inhabitants–over 6,000 specimens of bats from at least 6 different species.
A visit to the Caves, guided by qualified personnel, provides access to a real underground canyon, along which it is possible to admire suggestive environments. Walking along the main water-made channel you can admire shimmering gypsum crystals, ceilings and walls smoothed and chiselled by nature and finally the spectacular Sala Quarina, also known as the Sala dei Mammelloni due to large conical gypsum protuberances that hang from its ceiling, among the largest of this kind in Europe.
Even here, history has left notable traces, in particular in the countryside in the small town of San Pietro in Cotto where there is evidence of extensive populated areas in the late Middle Ages with signs of the exploitation of agricultural resources found in farms and urban-rustic villas still clearly visible despite the devastation caused by clashes along the Gothic Line in the Second World War.
