The Walk From Padenghe Castle to Drugolo Castle is a dip into the Middle Ages of Valtenesi, from Padenghe to Drugolo castle, through a path that alternates wooded areas, rich in species typical of the pre-Alpine hilly belt such as oak, lime, maple and hazel, to areas of vineyards, olive groves, barley and sunflower fields, which harmonize with the natural environment and give further beauty to the landscape. It is a path accessible to all and with few difficulties and lasts a couple of hours.
It starts from the church of Pratello, there you walk for a while between the fields and at the first crossroads, turn right into via Pralongo, following it all the way to the stop sign, from which you can already see the Padenghe castle. Then go back by going left onto via Monte, which leads to via Gramsci. Going up for a hundred meters, you will come across the indication S. Emiliano, which leads to the Romanesque church. Having admired the church, continue along the dirt road until you come out on an asphalted road which, after turning left, must be covered for a short distance and, as soon as you see a house with a nursery on the right, it must be abandoned, taking the alley that is just below the house. Then continue up to the indication via Calvino, where you enter by following it all. After passing the La Pampa farmhouse, proceed downhill until Castel Drugolo appears majestic and you walk right under its walls to be able to admire it, even if only from the outside.
