" The Erosion Pyramids Town", located at about seven hundred meters above sea level at the foot of Monte Guglielmo, is a quiet resort, visited all year round by trekking lovers, who can find countless paths to explore. Zone is also known for its gastronomy with tasty traditional recipes based on mushrooms and local game meat.

SIGHTSEEING ATTRACTIONS
In the old town centre, with old wooden and stone houses, some of which date back to the 17th century, there is the parish church of S. Giovanni Battista (17th century). The interior, with a single nave, preserves a majestic wooden altarpiece and a valuable group of painted wood sculptures, featuring the "Lamentation over the Dead Christ" by Andrea Fantoni (17th century). On the same square is the eighteenth-century chapel with an octagonal plan frescoed by Voltolini. Former cemetery church now dedicated to the Marian cult. In the hamlet of Cislano, before reaching Zone, the little church of San Giorgio, formerly parish church of Zone until the 16th century, is well worth a visit. Built in the fifteenth century, its outer wall has frescoes from 1400, including St. George on horseback killing the dragon. Continuing towards Zone, after about 500 meters, on the right, at the top of a ramp, there is the church of Saints Ippolito and Cassiano dating back to the fifteenth century. The facade has a cross vaulted pronaos.

NOT TO BE MISSED
The natural reserve of the Erosion Pyramids - Nowadays, the fame of Zone is mainly due to the presence of enormous land formations supporting large boulders in the locality of Cislano: the earth pyramids, resulting from a rare erosion phenomenon boasting few samples worldwide. Inside the reserve there is a path with explanatory signs allowing visitors to take a closer look at this unique natural monument. Distance time: 1h.
