Where water meets light
Starting point: Val Raccolana – Pian della Sega

The final stretch of the impressive waterfall that flows out of Fontanon di Goriuda in Val Raccolana is called "Waterfall of the Sun." A simple trail leads up to this big waterfall appearing in all its wild beauty. It is further enhanced by a crystal clear pool where loudly flowing water creates diverse ephemeral and evanescent figures in the spray.
