the lake of Pietra Nera and the Stirone park
(Fidenza÷Salsomaggiore T.÷Vernasca (PR÷PC) - Emilia Romagna)

Let's go for another walk in the Stirone regional park, especially to visit the Pietra Nera lake, which is within the park boundaries.

We also show some pictures of two sites close to the park: the ancient church of San Nicomede and the MuMAB Museo Mare Antico e Biodiversità (ph n. 39).

Lake Pietra Nera:
at the southern edge of the park, on the right bank of the Stirone River, in a very interesting landscape context stands an isolated spur of black rock.
It is an ophiolite that testifies the evolution of the Apennines in the Jurassic period, from 195 to 135 million years ago.
These are the remains of the oldest known ocean, Tethys.
But the beauty of this isolated spur does not end here.
This time the man, unintentionally, has managed to create a stupendous unicum.
At first glance, it looks like just a rocky spur, but inside it hides a beautiful pond due to the excavation of material used to build railroad ballast.
After the interruption of the excavation, the dig was filled with water from underground springs.

A couple of suggestions:
a few steps from the Stirone is the ancient parish church of San Nicomede (9th century).
Located along the Via Francigena, it was the destination of many pilgrims because the waters of its well were considered miraculous.
Its only one flaw is that it is often closed.
Nearby there is also the MuMAB Museo Mare Antico e Biodiversità at whose entrance there is the snout of a whale, rising from the sea, that wants to recall the ancient Tethys.
We also suggest, a few minutes away, the walled village of Vigoleno, the oratory of San Genesio and the castle of Scipione.
