4. Alto Tanaro Tour, stage 4: from Rifugio Mongioie to Rifugio Don Barbera
The Chapel of Sant'Erim and the Selle Refuge in Carnino
The Chapel of Sant'Erim (Chapel of Sant'Elmo) was built following the saint's apparitions here to groups of shepherds. Tradition has it that a mass was celebrated here every year on the day the cattle went up to the mountain pastures.
The Rifugio Selle di Carnino was built from a shepherds hut by the Ligurian Section of the CAI . It was used until the Second World War when it was seriously
damaged and definitively abandoned.
