An easy walk into the woods from the hamlet Ponciach to the old quarry Gravoni of Faver.
Starting from the basin of lawns in Ponciach this itinerary goes on the south-western slopes of the mountain Monte Castion and after passing through beech and Scots pine woods ends at a steep porphyry stone landslide named I Gravoni. There was a porphyry stone quarry here on time, which has been abandoned since a few years. Among the rocks sometimes you can still see some pieces of iron: parts of machines and carriages used for the carved stones transportation. From here you can enjoy a wonderful landscape on the valley Valle di Cembra.
