Propata

Overview

A small mountain municipality in the Brugneto Valley, it is made up of many hamlets, several of which, located along the course of the Brugneto itself, no longer exist because they have been submerged by the artificial lake of the same name. The village, probably founded by populations fleeing from the coast due to Saracen raids, stood on a strategic crossroads of communication. The village, highly populated in earlier times and characterised by a lively agricultural economy, suffered post-war neglect. From Propata it is possible to make several excursions to Lake Brugneto or to Mount Antola in a beautiful natural environment. The parish church of San Lorenzo, dating from the Baroque period, is worth a visit. Inside there is a wooden choir from the late 17th century and a statue attributed to Maragliano. The aforementioned hamlet is also part of the Antola Regional Natural Park: one of the most enchanting areas of the Apennines and the Ligurian hinterland, thanks to the extraordinary panorama of the 1600 m Mount Antola and the activities of the nearby Brugneto Lake.
