Aprica Pass - Valtellina - italy
The Aprica Pass, especially when seen within a historical context, links the Valtellina (Aprica) and the Val Camonica (Edolo). This may have been the location, or one of the locations, where local pre-Christian folk-pagans would meet for the eight seasonal festivals... going back thousands of years. It's more than just another pretty place.
