Garfagnana Fortezza delle Verrucole

Really a fortress, this sprawling 11th-century ridge-top ruin, set among dark hills, will ignite the imagination. It will have to, for there is not much left of it but its impenetrable outer walls. It does, however, offer a great view of the Apuan Alps; and nearby, in the middle of a lake, is a minute village.
