the world's most spectacular roads

Passo Baremone (Passo del Mare)

Passo Baremone (also known as the Passo del Mare), is a high mountain pass at an elevation of 1,450 m above the sea level, located in the Italian group of Passo di Croce Domini between Val Sabbia and the Val Trompia (Brescia) and it links Lago d'Idro with Mella, through the Passo del Maniva and belongs to the Alps. The pass is traversed by the spectacular Anfo ridge road. 

The road over the pass is mostly paved, with gravel sections surfing among cliffs offering a scenical opportunity to cross the Bergamo Alps. The pass is located in the Italian group of Passo di Croce Domini between Val Sabbia and the Val Trompia (Brescia) and links Lago d'Idro with Mella, through the Passo del Maniva.
With a length of 36,8km this old military road is certainly breathtaking and it has a fearsome reputation. It has an important rock fall risk. The road has some gravel sections and includes 4 short tunnels. In 2010 some new tunnels were built to bypass the narrowest parts.
This road is closed from November to May, but it can be closed anytime when the access is not cleared of snow. The speed is limited to 20 km/h. The road is closed to vehicles with a width of 2,50m and a height of 3,20m. The original road was built on Roman times. 
Different excursions depart from the pass. The most important ones are to Corna Blacca (2,000 m), Forte di Cima Ora and the complex of Rocca d'Anfo, fortification of the Napoleonic period, very interesting for its history and militar value. Starting from Anfo, the ascent is 11.26 km long. Over this distance, the elevation gain is 1.012 meters and the average percentage is 9 %.
