Trekking with Mules in the Sibillini Mountains National ParkTrekking with Mules in Castelluccio di Norcia
In Castelluccio, as in many other similar mountain areas, mules and donkeys were an integral part of the life of the local population. The mules, especially, were used as means of transportation for people and things, especially here they were used during the cutting of the wood, and still are used where the forest (bush) is inaccessible to mechanical means.
