thirty years of Park (1985-2015)


BOSA Geopark farm "Giuseppe Nardini"
"the space of lived time"...

where it is



The Bosa is located in the inner slope of the Apuan Alps, near Careggine (province of Lucca), in the Garfagnana land.
Once you reach the village, you have to go beyond the historic core, built around the church of St. Peter.
The small group of rural buildings, known as the Bosa, is just 200 meters from the last houses of the village.
The site, facing west, is set in a natural terrace overlooking the Vagli lake and the valley of the Edron river.
It is a vantage point of view that embraces the northern part of the Apuan Alps, from Group Fiocca-Sumbra to Pisanino.
