Sella di Leonessa
Sella di Leonessa is a high mountain pass at an elevation of 1.890m (6,200ft) above the sea level, located in the Central Apennines, in Italy.
The road to the summit, also known as Monte Terminillo, is called SP 10. It’s usually impassable from November to May. The road includes several hairpin turns. The climb has been used by the Giro d’Italia race. There are some really steep sections (up to 12.2%). The road across the Sella di Leonessa connects the provincial capital of Rieti, supposedly the center of Italy, with Leonessa, a pretty mountain village on the northern foothills of the Monti Reatini.
