Itinerary in detail
From the bridge of Gatta you go down on the forest road and from here reach, following the shore of the Secchia river, the "Springs of Poiano". Exceptional springs for their capacity (522 liters/sec in dry period, Hydrographic office of the Po, 16 March 1951) and for the high level of mineralization. These springs, on the right side of the Secchia, spring from the base of the mountain - chalky and calcium like. The temperature of these waters goes from a minimum of 9.6 - 10° C to a max. of 10.8 - 10.9 ° C; the modest variations are proof that the water is not affected by surface temperature.
