Routes in Val Nure

Bordering borders with Parma Apennines and traveled by river Arda, Val d'Arda is the valley of the province of Piacenza. Val d'Arda converge minor valleys of Riglio, Vezzeno, the Chero, Chiavenna, dell'Ongina and part Stirone.
The river Arda was born in about 1300 m altitude, from north-western slopes of Mount Lama, in the municipality of Morfasso.
Its waters flow for a good stretch to reach, after about 15 km, to an artificial barrier represented by the dam known as Lake Mignano, a body of water of about 2 square kilometers, at an altitude of 341 m, from dual function of reservoir water and basin hydroelectric purposes. The river Arda then bathes the territory of Lugagnano Val d'Arda and Castell'Arquato, to go down to the plains where it crosses the city of Fiorenzuola d'Arda and Cortemaggiore.
The other towns in the Val d'Arda are Alseno, Polesine, San Pietro in Cerro, Vernasca, Villanova sull'Arda.
