Once again, you'll pass many old military constructions. The ancient villages of Realdo and Verdeggia can be seen, picturesque little hamlets belonging to the Comune of Triora. These clustered dwellings were built by shepherds on the mountainside. The upper ridge of Monte Saccarello and Montee Frontè are also very interesting, with their typically alpine landscapes small larch forests, rhododendrons and open meadows, where mountain chamois, hares, ermines and marmots have chosen their habitat.
On the second highest, eastern peak of Monte Saccarello, at an altitude of 2,166m, you'll see the imposing statue of Christ, "Il Ridentore". It's made of cast iron and stands 5,6 metres high on an 8,4 metre stone pedestal. It was erected between 1901 and 1902 and was inaugurated in the presence of thousands of people. From here, you'll make the final descent of the day, following the ski slopes down to the ski resort of Monesi for your overnight stay.
