From here the route continues uphill to Mortale and then to Montattico along a road with almost no traffic, offering breathtaking views over the Comino Valley. At Montattico the panorama opens out onto the wild Gole del Melfa and the astronomical observatory is in a dominant position. The route continues uphill towards Campo del Popolo, where the view dominates the Valle del Rapido.
