Pietrapazza is located in the town of Bagno di Romagna, 613 m above sea level in the Bidente valley, surrounded by steep rocky walls with scattered houses, which today are uninhabited. A small church and a small restored building, as well as some ruins on a hill on the other side of the narrow and wooded valley, remind of the life there once was in these mountains. This is how the Grand Duke Leopold II described the place in the mid-nineteenth century: "On the sharp edges of the slopes of the mountain there were poor villages with churches: San Paolo in Alpe, Casanova, Pietrapazza, and Strabatenza". The Pietrapazza valley has the extraordinary charm of a wild nature that still keeps the signs intact of the ancient presence of peasants very closely linked to their land; It is particularly suitable for those who want to go hiking in solitary nature.
