Mottarone Parco dei Sassi
The stones of the park are of a pink and gray granite with large grains, often round and bizarre shapes and are laid down, depending on the sector, on grass or sand. Holes, rounds, cracks, blades, edges, roofs and overhangs are the details of the boulders that in some cases reach over five meters in height.
