Lama & its surroundingsOverlooking the beautiful valley of Ostriconi, between the sea and mountains, Lama is a historic village with a preserved architectural and natural setting.
Walk through the narrow stony alleyways and vaulted passages and discover the heart of the old village with its small houses leaning against the rock. Most of their foundations date back to the Middle Ages. Keep going and admire the mighty residences from the 18th century, I Palazzi.
Different walks and discovery trails starting from the Place de l’Eglise (Church Square) take you through the vestiges of a rich agro-pastoral history and beautiful landscapes: fountains, sheepfolds, straw-houses, cheese cellars, terrace farming, dry stone walls, gardens, and wheat-threshing floors.
For the more athletic, the Monte Astu hike is an ideal outing. The Monte Astu (Mount Astu) rises to 1,535 meters above sea level and is the highest peak of the Serra di Tenda mountain range. This hike starts at the top of the village at 534 meters above sea level and winds along an old but well maintained mule track. The first stop is the Pruninco refuge located half way on a small plateau at 1050 meters above sea level (about 6 hours round trip).
