Easy tourist trail, named after Ilaria Del Carretto, famous for the marble mausoleum, sculpted by Jacopo della Quercia and commissioned by Paolo Guinigi, lord of Lucca to whom she married. Ilaria was born right here in Zuccarello in 1379 and lived the first years of her life inside the castle, now reduced to ruins, above the village. Brief visit of the latter, then ascent through the path and, in a few minutes, arrive at the ruins of the castle of the important Marquis Del Carretto family. Continuing on the path you will reach Castelvecchio di Rocca Barbena, built around the castle.
Short visit and descent back to the starting point.
