Prehistoric engineering: the Ciappo delle Conche and Ceci ring
An excursion to Monte Cucco, among the scents of the Mediterranean bush, taking you to two places of great archaeological interest: the Ciappo delle Conche and the Ciappo dei Ceci.
A short and simple excursion, of about a couple of hours, suitable for children.
At the Ciappo delle Conche
The first stretch, the one to reach the Ciappo delle Conche, was described in a previous article.
But if you still want to walk, instead of immediately returning to the parking lot, you can lengthen the route by reaching a second ciappo, that of the Ceci.
A little journey into prehistory, to the Iron Age.
At the Ciappo dei Ceci
Also in this second place there are engravings on the limestone slab typical of Finale.
Here there is a single tank with three V-shaped channels for collecting the liquid, It is a second example of a water system for collecting rainwater, an example of prehistoric engineering.
To learn more about the topic, I suggest you visit the site of the Archaeological Museum of Finale Ligure.
