Passo del Colombardo

The road to the summit, also known as Col de Colombardo is mostly unpaved. It has been recently renovated. The road is narrow, very steep, and usually closed in winters.

At the summit there’s a small church, called Santuario della Madonna degli Angeli. The name of the pass has its origin, probably, in the name of a wind that blows from the Lombardy.
