Set between the city of Brescia and Lake Garda, the Marble Road is an important itinerary that retraces the settings, history and culture linked to the quarrying activities that have characterised and still determine the development of the territory and the society of this region.
The Virle Valley is without doubt one of the Marble Road’s most important areas. Virle Treponti, where the Consorzio Marmisti Bresciani is based, offers some remarkable attractions from a touristic point of view.
This region’s history reveals a link between nature and human activity that still exists today -- a bond that has shaped and coloured the territory we can see now.
So when we speak of Virle we think of a valley which is rich in flora and fauna, embedded in rock that conveys the experience of ancient quarrying and constant reconquest by nature.
