This road burrows its way through the mountain in the ravine formed by the river Brasa. The drive is known by motorcyclists from all over Europe, as it is impressive and not exactly without danger in a few narrow and steep spots. It links Tremosine with the districts of Pieve and Vesio. It’s a real gem, nestled in the depths of the mountain, along with the rift carved by the river Brasa. Landslides can occur anytime and can sometimes block some sections of the road. The road, officially known as SP38 was inaugurated in 1913. Winston Churchill defined it as the eighth wonder of the world. The road still remains an adrenaline-pumping journey and is definitely not for the faint of lungs, heart, or legs. A quick glance at the map, at its sheer drops and serpentine twists and turns, confirms that this is no hype. For the skilled drivers only. Quite challenging but definitely worth it.
