To the tower of Caprona

Above the small village of Caprona, south of Calci looms a lone tower, the destination of our travels. To make things interesting, we first visit the idyllic village of Montemagno and pay a visit to the battlements atop Monte Verruca.

Unlike the last time we went to Monte Verruca, we will take a slightly more direct route, avoiding the steep climb.
