Just before the valley that houses the famous Pimonte living crib, you take a detour to left that goes on “M.Pino”, first encountering the chapel of S.Giacomo and then, at the top, the remains of the “Castello di Pino” and the recently restored millenary church.
Continuing eastwards on “Colle Carpineto”, you can walk along the basalt road that connected the “Castello di Pino” to the “Ancient Republic of Amalfi”, until you reach the source of the “Acqua Fredda” and the surce of “Acqua Vrecciara”.

In 1241 it was repaired by Frederick II.
