Almost at the center of the Alps, Masino Valley, leaves the flat Valtellina, rises northwards towards the Swiss border, located on the watershed. We find ourselves in the middle of the purely mountainous portion of Lombardy, which from the administrative point of view constitutes the territory of the Province of Sondrio, the only province entirely alpine in Lombardy. Today, thanks to the new road link, the Masino Valley has become the territory with distinctly high mountain characteristics that can be reached in less time and in a more direct way from Milan.
