From Passo Mendola to the Penegal

Quite a lot of exalted persons already stayed on the Passo Mendola, Empress Sissi, Archduke Franz Ferdinand, several ministers of the Republic, three popes (Johannes XXIII, Paul VI and Johannes Paul I) as well as Mahatma Gandhi are among them. We walked to the place where already Archduke Franz Ferdinand watched down on the valley, accompanied by a very likeable local inhabitant. Our excursion started in the Mendola funicular, the steepest funicular railway of Europe – very exciting!
